Multi-Year Grant Programs for Arts Organizations

Multiple cars surround a large silver rectangular stage in a parking lot. The cars are mainly black and white in colour. On the stage, there are two dancers in grey tanktops and shorts. One of the dancers is walking to the left side of the stage, while the other has their left leg kicked up high in the centre of the stage.

Three-year Operating Grants and two-year Program Support Grants make contributions to the operations of incorporated established arts organizations with a continuing presence in Winnipeg throughout the year or seasonally, and a track record of high-quality programming or services. Multi-year grants support a range of activities and art forms, reflecting different cultural traditions and art practices. Arts organizations receiving support are expected to advance the development of their art forms, to participate in the development of local artists, to maintain public support, and to practice strict management and financial controls.

Arts organizations are invited to apply to either the two-year or three-year program depending on a variety of factors including budget size, scope of programming, and number of staff. All organizations receiving multi-year grants must have a history of consistent programming/presentation and public support and must provide regular reporting to ensure that they continue to meet the objectives of the program.

Eligibility

Due to budgetary constraints, acceptance into this program for new applicants is limited. Currently, applications are accepted by invitation only. Please contact the Program & Arts Development Manager for more information.
