COVID-19 and the Winnipeg Arts Council

Due to the current public health situation the Winnipeg Arts Council office is currently closed to the public.

Staff are working in the office/remotely and are available by email during regular office hours. If you would like to get in touch with us please contact us directly.

Public Art Tours

We hope to be able to offer in-person walking and biking tours that respect evolving public health guidelines this summer. 

In the meantime, why not make your own tour using the new Winnipeg Public Art Works mobile app? It's free and available for iOS and Android. Find out all about it here.

Jane's Walk will be a virtual festival this year. Check out the community-created walks, rides, runs and rolls here, along with a library of walking maps and resources.

Grants Information

Guidelines for the 2021 Individual Artist Grant (Cycle 2 deadline: September 8, 2021) are available on the Grants for Artists page. Applications will open in early July.

Any individual, collective or organization currently holding a WAC grant which has been affected by COVID-19 should contact Program & Arts Development Manager Dominic Lloyd with an update on your plans. We understand that each situation is unique and circumstances are constantly changing and we will do our best to accommodate the challenges our community is facing as a result of the pandemic.
