Every fall, The Manitoba Arts Network brings some of the best Canadian talent in music, dance, theatre, visual and literary arts together in a different Manitoba community to showcase their work for arts organizations across the province. All attendees have the opportunity to experience performances, professional development workshops, visual art exhibits, literary readings and networking.  All this takes place over three days of celebrating and sharing the arts.

The showcases of talented artists from across the country gives delegates the chance to preview and meet performers they may want to bring to their community during the upcoming season. The preeminent event of its kind in Manitoba, Showcase provides opportunity for rural and northern arts presenters to exchange ideas and develop or renew professional relationships.

2018 Schedule can be seen here!
