Grants ranging from $15,000 to $30,000 per year to Manitoba artists in all disciplines for creative personal projects needed for an extended period. Funding is intended to allow artists to experiment with, examine, and investigate style, process, technique, method, and content in their artistic practice, or to explore an issue or concern with their work. The program allows artists to dedicate themselves to their arts practice, impacting their career beyond a single project.
This program is open to proposals and artists in all disciplines including composers, media artists, performing artists, visual and craft artists, writers, and playwrights. It is also open to multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and collaborative projects.
The Major Arts Grant covers living expenses (maximum of $2,500 per month) and costs associated with the proposal including research, equipment, and materials, mentoring and coaching fees, residency workshop fees, rental of studio space, significant professional development opportunities, and travel expenses.
