About Us

Creative Manitoba strengthens, represents and connects Manitoba’s arts and creative industries.

Our entrepreneurship training and mentorship opportunities teach artists how to sustain themselves creatively and financially. Our arts specific management training increases productivity and profitability in arts and cultural organizations.

We promote the value of the arts. In support of this work, we create and publish directories of artists and creative workers, conduct research and share the findings through educational seminars and outreach.

Our creative coworking space supports business growth for independent creative entrepreneurs and creates a focal point for the arts and creative industries in Manitoba.

We unite and engage employers, workers, educators, professional associations and government in a strategic alliance, enabling the arts and cultural sector to thrive.
