Winnipeg Arts Council

Board of Directors

The Winnipeg Arts Council Board of Directors consists of 16 individuals. Six are elected by artists and representatives of arts and cultural organizations, and six are appointed by City Council from a list of nominees from the community at large. One City Councillor serves in a voting capacity and one City staff member serves in a non-voting capacity. The chair is elected from within the Council and is replaced on the Council by another individual from the same category. Once elected or appointed, the members of the Council represent the community and not the constituency that elected or nominated them. Members may serve a maximum of three two-year terms.
