Join us in conversation with guest Tracey Longbottom, Program Consultant for The Manitoba Arts Council Indigenous 360 program. We are offering Indigenous artists, groups, and organizations an opportunity to learn more about the Indigenous 360 program.

This talk will cover:

  • The Indigenous 360 Granting Program and who it is for
  • Who can apply for a grant
  • How to apply for a grant as an artist, a group, or an organization
  • What grants are available and upcoming
  • Why you will want to contact the program consultants/officers before you apply

For those who are already in the process of applying for a grant, this workshop may help you provide the finishing touches on your applications! For those artists new or hesitant to the process, the workshop will give you some understanding of the funding process on a provincial level.

We hope to answer all your burning questions and prevent any existential crises! Am I eligible for funding? How do I determine if I am an emerging or established artist? What are the pieces of a grant application?  What type of expenses can go into your grant budget? Am I involved in a “group” or an “organization” and what’s the difference? Should I apply for a microgrant, a small-scale grant or a large-scale grant?

Overall we hope to enlighten and encourage Indigenous artists, groups, and organizations to apply for grants and lessen the intimidation factor by providing insight, information, and encouragement to creating a successful grant application.

The workshop is offered FREE. Please register online before 10:30 am CST on Feb 29, 2024, and a Zoom link will be sent to your email address by 11 am. This workshop is live-streamed, it will NOT be recorded, so please make plans to attend!

If you haven’t received the Zoom link, please check your spam or junk mail folder.


The Manitoba Arts Council Indigenous 360 program supports artistic and cultural activities by Indigenous applicants including artists, Knowledge Keepers, Indigenous-led arts groups and Indigenous-led organizations. You can apply for the creation of new artworks or works in progress, public presentations, community projects involving Indigenous artists (such as workshops, artistic collaborations, and gathering events), publications, and training (including apprenticeships and mentorship opportunities). There are microgrants, small-scale grants and large-scale grants available with deadlines on April 25th and October 25th, 2024.


Tracey Longbottom is originally from Brokenhead Ojibway Nation and has worked with the Manitoba Indigenous community for over 30 years.  She started her artistic career at 17 as an artist with Wee Gwas Art gallery and was mentored in the art of printmaking by Jackson Beardy.  She enrolled at the School of Art at the University of Manitoba, and afterwards interned at the Winnipeg Art Gallery as an apprentice curator with the Inuit art collection.  As an independent curator she developed two exhibitions “The Prolific Ashoona family of Cape Dorset” and “Full Circle”.  Her current role is Program Consultant for the Indigenous 360 program at the Manitoba Art Council.
