All-Access Bursary for BIPOC Artists

Creative Manitoba’s All Access Bursary Fund is designed to help Manitoban BIPOC* artists gain access to Creative Manitoba workshops, programs or coaching sessions where cost may be a barrier. Our goal is to create a space where all artists have the ability to further their knowledge regardless of financial circumstances.

We are committed to creating equitable, safe, and welcoming spaces that fully represent our diverse and intersectional membership and their needs, including the acknowledgement of various systems of power at play and how those affect our communities.

*Black, Indigenous, Persons of Colour
