COVID-19 Impact on Arts & Culture in Manitoba

To better understand how the pandemic has impacted Manitoba’s arts and culture sector financially, the Manitoba Arts Council organized a survey. 

Between May 13 and May 24, 2020, 485 people responded (70% individuals, 30% organizations). 

Key findings: 

  • Almost all respondents expect to lose income during 2020 (85 percent of individuals, over 90 percent of organizations).  
  • Respondents have lost nearly 50 percent of their normal earnings for January – April 2020. 
  • Around 70 percent of normal income will probably be lost between May and August 2020.
