Visual Arts: Touring Exhibition Program
Submission deadline: January 8, 2018
About the program:
The Manitoba Arts Network’s Visual Arts Touring Exhibition Program makes a wide variety of visual art exhibitions available to arts and cultural organizations throughout the province of Manitoba. The purpose of the program is to provide high quality, cost-effective exhibitions to communities that will enhance the awareness and appreciation of regional and national artists.
From traditional to contemporary, emerging and established artists along with a balance of media and themes, we try to have a selection of shows available for booking at any given time that will appeal to different audiences and suit different venues and budgets.
While we do not cover the production costs for touring exhibitions, MAN provides support in terms of developing didactic and educational materials to accompany exhibitions, and will cover costs associated with the professional crating of exhibitions, shipping and insurance of works while on tour.
Selected exhibitions typically tour for a one-year period either in the current year or proceeding year. MAN pays artists a basic exhibition fee for each month that their touring exhibition is booked. If we are successful in securing funding/grants for an exhibition then artist fees are paid at approved CARFAC rates.
