Grants of up to $10,000 to Manitoba nonprofit organizations, collectives, and unincorporated groups in eligible locations for arts projects and activities. Certain applicants must contact the Funding Source prior to applying. Funding is intended to support a broad range of activities and art forms, reflecting different cultural traditions and art practices. Eligible projects benefit the residents of Winnipeg.
A Project Grant must be applied to a specific project - with potential for artistic merit and civic impact. This program is open to Winnipeg arts organizations and collectives that have as their primary mandate and core activity, the creation, production, or presentation of the performing, visual, literary, film, video, or media arts.
Because of the ever-changing public health situation and its effects on all aspects of arts creation and presentation, applicants are encouraged to think about how their projects may be affected by both existing and potential restrictions related to Covid-19. Applications should articulate contingency planning as well as attention to risk management, safety measures, and other considerations commensurate with the scale of the project.
Applications will be reviewed based on artistic merit, civic impact, and project viability/organizational competence.
