Please note: Applications for Showcase 2018 are now closed.
We will announce the 2018 Showcase Lineup in June 2018.
For artists wanting to tour Manitoba, your best bet is to apply to showcase for presenters/buyers at MB Showcase 2018.
Artists are selected by a jury to perform in three live showcases at the William Glesby Centre, for an audience of arts organizations (presenters) seeking to book acts to tour to their communities in 2019/20. Following the conference, Manitoba Arts Network will coordinate block booked tours of the showcasing artists throughout the province based on interest generated by presenters/buyers who attended MB Showcase.
Manitoba Arts Network is the only organization that showcases and coordinates tours in Manitoba, generating $120,000 – $180,000 in artist fees per year. Showcasing artists can receive up to four years of on-going bookings based on their performance at MB Showcase.
