Get Your Craft Grant Here

As many of you will know, the Manitoba Arts Council’s Craft Grant deadline is looming… just 12 sleeps away.  The grant offers support for craft artists towards the production of new work.  The funds may be used for research, travel, supplies and materials, temporary studio space, technical assistance, apprenticeship, etc.  For the full details, click here.
Many Manitoba Craft Council members have benefited from the grant including 2012 recipients Evelin Richter, Ione Thorkelsson, Teresa Burrows, and Willow Rector.  This year, it could be you.  The deadline is September 15.  Good luck!
