Info for Artists

The Manitoba Arts Network is all about connecting artists to communities throughout Manitoba. We recruit, showcase and promote performing artists, coordinate show-bookings for our network of presenters, and schedule block-booked tours for artists

Do you want to showcase?

Performing artists can apply through—a platform which allows applicants to register for several different Showcase events across both Canada and the US. Artists from different disciplines who are interested in touring their show in Manitoba — dance, theatre, music, or any other kind of performing art —are encouraged to apply

Each October, at our annual Manitoba Showcase event, we preview 15 live performances by a selection of artists from across the country. Hosted in a different Manitoba community each year, Manitoba Showcase brings together members of our regional arts network, including concert series presenters, provincial arts councils, arts educators, industry representatives and other arts programming organizations, to preview acts they may wish to bring to their own communities.
Manitoba Showcase 2018 will be held October 25 to 28, 2018 it The Glesby Centre in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba.

Our friends over at Manitoba Music put together a great article explaining what Showcase Contact events are all about with insight from some of the people behind the scenes and on the stages. READ THE ARTICLE HERE
