Hosted by the Manitoba Arts Network, the Manitoba Arts Directory is an online artist directory, event listing and news publishing platform dedicated to serving the Manitoba art and cultural community. The site was created to serve as a hub drawing together artists, arts presenters, and art enthusiasts for everything arts & culture related in Manitoba. The Manitoba Arts Directory includes artist and art industry listings, art and cultural events listings, and art news from all of Manitoba’s communities. ​

The Manitoba Arts Directory replaces our former printed directory as a resource used by the Network’s membership base of arts organizations.
