The Manitoba Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts will be providing information on arts grants Monday night. Executive Director for the Manitoba Council Randy Joynt says they will provide three free sessions on accessing their programs. He explains from 6 to 7 pm is specifically focused on their Indigenous arts programs so that would be appropriate for Indigenous artists, Knowledge Keepers and folks involved with Indigenous arts organizations. He continued then they have a meet and greet from 7 to 7:45 and that’s a more casual sort of chat with them and folks from the Canada Council of the Arts which is their federal counterpart and then from 7:45 to 8:45 they’re going to be speaking about their programs generally.
Joynt adds any artists, people associated with arts organization or anyone interested can attend any or all of the session Monday night at the Norva Centre at 177 Green Street. It’s free with refreshments during the meet and greet.
