Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to Manitoba nonprofit community arts and culture organizations and service groups and local governments (in operation for at least one year) to provide arts education to children and youth with limited opportunity for such programs. Grantees will deliver curriculum based arts education to students.

Priority will be given to communities with the lowest levels of existing arts programming. All projects must involve Manitoba artists or arts organizations.

If a project is school-based it must be carried out in partnership with at least one community-based or professional arts organization, or with a professional artist.

Funding is intended to support only those costs associated with direct program delivery (artists’ fees or honoraria for guest instructors, art supplies, equipment rental, facility rental, advertising, etc.).

Funding is not intended to support the presentation of arts events, performances, exhibitions etc., or to purchase tickets/admissions to such events.

Funding is not normally intended to support private lessons for individuals or student travel.
