Presented in partnership with MAWA (Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art)

Synonym Art Consultation will share their vast experience in presenting cultural programming in unconventional spaces. This workshop will provide tools, discussion and examples of successful exhibitions for artists in a wide variety of venues, from traditional galleries, to restaurants, to the streets. What are the risks and what are the opportunities in presenting outside of a white cube? Chloe Chafe will focus on creative marketing of off-gallery programming and Andrew Eastman will discuss the ins and outs of partnerships and funding opportunities for artists.

Instructor: Synonym is committed to providing meaningful employment and mentorship opportunities to artists and to facilitating the celebration of art and culture with unique, inclusive, community-minded events. Through the mural and culture festival, Wall-to-Wall, Synonym cultivates a grassroots, contemporary street art movement in Winnipeg and participates in hyper-local and international dialogues around important issues, such as Indigenous rights, social responsibility and innovative economic development rooted in the arts.
