Creative Manitoba’s Indigenous programs provide workshops and programs for and by Indigenous cultural workers, artists and art enthusiasts.
We work with Indigenous artists of all disciplines–contemporary, traditional, and/or both–and offer networking, educational, and hands-on experiences that promote Indigenous arts and artists at every level.
All facilitators employ a mentorship approach from an Indigenous perspective that fosters art, cultural, and professional development while empowering, supporting and engaging our communities.
The Indigenous programs exist to:
- Support Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists and art organizations to meet their professional goals pertaining to Indigenous art and cultural practices
- Develop programs that foster the emergence of Indigenous cultural leadership at every level
- Identify and/or promote initiatives and projects that focus on Indigenous contributions in arts, culture and heritage sectors, and work towards the revitalization and empowerment of our communities
