Support – Adapt

The Adapt program assists applicants who are responding to the changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic by adapting their artistic practice, expanding their skills, building new relationships, or creating new work. This  funding intake is made possible by the Manitoba government’s investment in the Arts and Culture Sustainability Funds to support Manitoba’s art and culture sector, which has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A program supporting organizations under the name Support-Arts and Culture Sustainability Fund is also available as part of the government’s investment.
