Artists in the Schools Directory

Deadline: November 1 (for activity starting the following September)

The Manitoba Arts Council’s Artists in the Schools program supports Manitoba schools by bringing together the unique vision and energy of artists with the creative and critical potential of students and teachers.

The Directory

The Artists in the Schools Directory is used by Manitoba schools to select professional artists for residencies integrated into the school’s daily schedule.

Successful applicants will be included in the directory. However, inclusion does not guarantee a residency.

Schools select artists from the directory and then contact artists to include in their own application to the Artists in the Schools Residencies Program. The application deadline for schools is May 15th for the following school year.

Artist fees and expenses are paid after residencies are approved. Artists are paid a residency fee of $1,200 per week.

MAC       $750/wk for each artist
              (plus travel & living expenses)

School    $450/wk for each artist
              (plus GST & material costs)
