Arts grant session provides opportunities, shares knowledge

Northern artists will have a chance to get a crash course in applying for major grants.

Representatives with the Manitoba Arts Council (MAC) will host three sessions Feb. 10 to provide information on grant applications for local artists. The sessions will take place at the NorVA Centre, starting at 6 p.m.

The three sessions will include information for Indigenous arts groups, a meet and greet and a final session on general grants for artists, organizations and other groups.

The sessions will include a number of provincial arts community figures, including MAC program consultant Tracey Longbottom, MAC executive director Randy Joynt, Department of Canadian Heritage regional director Adrian Wortley and J.L. Watson, managing director of the Centre for Indigenous Theatre and a member of the Canada Council for the Arts.

Each session is described as ideal for “artists, arts and cultural professionals, knowledge keepers [and] people involved in arts groups and organizations.”

Each session will inform attendees about different ways to fund projects and art installations through both the MAC and the Canada Council for the Arts.

To RSVP for the event, contact Longbottom at or call 204-945-3180 or 1-866-994-2787.
