The Artists in the Schools Residencies Program brings together the unique vision and energy of artists and the creative potential of students and teachers.
The program supports existing arts education programs in Manitoba schools through residencies integrated into the school’s instructional schedule. The program is intended for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Schools can select from over 60 artists for their residency applications.
