A new three-year pilot program is working to grow cultural philanthropy to support arts, culture and heritage organizations in Manitoba.
ArtSupport Manitoba will teach staff and volunteers within the sector the skills needed to engage with the philanthropic community.
“Arts, culture and heritage organizations are the lifeblood of our province’s collective identity, our story,” said Randy Joynt, executive director of Artspace. “ArtSupport MB will support these organizations in diversifying their revenues so they may grow, take risks and fulfill their potential as innovators, storytellers and a vital component of Manitoba’s economy.”
The program is being funded in part by the federal government and generous donors.
Eligible arts, culture, and heritage organizations are encouraged to apply by 5 p.m. CT on Friday, February 21, 2014 by visiting ArtSupportMB.ca.
