MAWA: Mentoring Artists for Women's Art

Artist Boot Camp: Exhibiting in Unconventional Spaces, Oct. 17

Wednesday, October 17, 2018


MAWA, 611 Main Street

Instructor: Synonym Art Consultation

$10 for members of MAWA or Creative Manitoba; $20 for non-members. No need to register, just come.

Synonym will share their vast experience in presenting cultural programming in unconventional spaces. This workshop will provide tools, discussion and examples of successful exhibitions for artists in a wide variety of venues, from traditional galleries, to restaurants, to the streets. What are the risks and what are the opportunities in presenting outside of a white cube? Chloe Chafe will focus on creative marketing of off-gallery programming and Andrew Eastman will discuss the ins and outs of partnerships and funding opportunities for artists.

Synonym is committed to providing meaningful employment and mentorship opportunities to artists and to facilitating the celebration of art and culture with unique, inclusive, community-minded events. Through the mural and culture festival, Wall-to-Wall, Synonym cultivates a grassroots, contemporary street art movement in Winnipeg and participates in hyper-local and international dialogues around important issues, such as Indigenous rights, social responsibility and innovative economic development rooted in the arts.

Co-presented by MAWA and Creative Manitoba
