Every year, the Manitoba Arts Network invites some of the best Canadian talent to showcase their work for arts organizations across the province at Manitoba Showcase. Attendees have the opportunity to experience 15 incredible performances, attend professional development workshops, enjoy visual art exhibits and take in tons of networking time over three fulfilling days. 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 relationships.
What past Showcase delegates have to say:
“MAN has continued to be a resource for me since I started. Showcase is a great opportunity to meet people, network and find acts for your community. You always leave feeling excited to go back to your community and do somethings exciting.” – Manitoba Showcase 2016, Morden, MB
“It is a great opportunity to connect with arts specialists across the province and in different communities! Also a great opportunity to meet emerging and current artists touring in the region that we may be interested in hosting! Lots of great sessions this year full of wonderful ideas that we will be incorporating in our own council. Great experience!” – Manitoba Showcase 2016, Morden, MB
“Our rural presenting organization benefited tremendously from the professional development workshops, as well as the Showcase. The event seemed tailor made to our needs. We also shared tips and experiences with other similar organizations that we’d never get the opportunity to meet otherwise. Every part of the MAN Showcase was crucial to our development! Thank you MAN!!” – Manitoba Showcase 2016, Morden, MB
“This workshop (grant writing) will help our organization move forward and find funding, it will enhance our community, which currently has no arts centre.” – Manitoba Showcase 2016, Morden, MB
As one of the workshop presenters I love seeing the networking and learning that happens between workshop participants. The people giving the workshop aren’t the only experts in the room.

“The assistance of Manitoba Arts network is valuable to us as a presenter, the work that is done in offering talent is of great value. The ability to talk to other groups in the business of presenting is a great asset.” – Manitoba Showcase 2016, Morden, MB
