Arts and Culture Vision

Funding cuts to arts and culture has placed additional pressure on arts organizations and artists across the province. Arts and cultural organizations are essential to the well-being of Manitobans, giving people a sense of connection and belonging. Cultural hubs such as libraries also generate safety through community connection.


  • Increase funding for the Manitoba Arts Council and Winnipeg Arts Council.
  • Increase core funding for arts organizations across Manitoba to support sustainable programming.
  • Increased funding, hours and staffing for public libraries.
