Applications are now being accepted for the 2019-20 Indigenous Arts Leaders Fellowship

The Winnipeg Arts Council is pleased to partner with the Manitoba Museum for the 2019-2020 Indigenous Arts Leaders Fellowship.

The Indigenous Arts Leaders Fellowship was established in 2018 by the Winnipeg Arts Council to provide First Nations, Métis, or Inuit arts and cultural administration professionals with a specialized opportunity to become immersed in the history of material culture and the community of cultural organizations in Winnipeg. For the coming year, a new Fellow will work alongside the Manitoba Museum’s senior leadership team, and with the staff in each department, receiving dedicated mentoring within the organization while working on professional development and management skills.

The program champions Indigenous leaders in the community with the aim of developing deeper relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous arts and cultural administrators, practitioners and organizations. The Fellowship was developed through extensive consultations with Indigenous and non-Indigenous members of the arts community in Winnipeg and across Canada, as well as training agencies and employment specialists.

The Fellowship is a paid position (full-time, 9 months) with the Manitoba Museum. The recipient will receive mentorship, professional development, and management skills. Fellows will train in not-for-profit governance, human resources management, volunteer recruitment, and events planning.
