Manitoba Arts Council
Manitoba Arts Council is seeking applicants for their Arts Leaders program.

The program supports building capacity for leadership by individuals who self-identify as Black, Indigenous and / or People of Colour (BIPOC) in Manitoba’s arts and cultural sector with the goal of seeing more BIPOC professionals in senior positions.

Arts practitioners who identify as BIPOC, with a demonstrated commitment to the arts and cultural sector, including experience with professional arts / cultural organizations or groups, and community not-for-profit organizations are eligible to apply. Recipients will receive a grant of up to $35K.

Funding through this program is meant for leadership learning opportunities. Possible opportunities could include but are not limited to:

  • Mentorship and / or training opportunities within an organization. To be initiated by the applicant and to primarily benefit the applicant, rather than the host organization.
  • One-on-one mentorships
  • Post-secondary arts and cultural leadership studies
