Website MAWA


Are you a woman or non-binary rural artist living in Manitoba, Saskatchewan or Northwestern Ontario and a MAWA member, who would benefit from a trip to Winnipeg to see an exhibition, attend a lecture or take part in a workshop? Need to do research in the big city or buy art supplies? If so, MAWA welcomes your application to our Urban Retreat and is offering our urban, loft-style apartmen, FREE for stays of three nights to two weeks in duration. Contact MAWA staff for exact dates.

Subject to availability.  For details see HERE

The apartment is located on the second floor of 611 Main Street in downtown Winnipeg. It is a walk-up and is not wheelchair accessible. Pets and smoking are not allowed in the apartment. Artists’ family members are welcome.

MAWA’s apartment is a clean space that is not conducive to painting and many forms of sculpture. Because there are two beds separated by a curtain, consider making the trip to town with an art buddy. Free parking is included, just steps from the apartment.

Please send a letter to  explaining why you would like to stay at MAWA. Artists at all stages of their careers are encouraged to apply. We welcome rural artists and want to support your practices, so don’t be shy! Come and stay with us!
