Artists in the Schools Residencies Program
For over 40 years, the Manitoba Arts Council has helped foster the imagination of countless students through its arts education programs.
The Manitoba Arts Council’s Artists in the Schools Residencies Program (AIS program) brings together the unique vision and energy of professional artists with the creative potential of students and teachers.
The program helps support arts education programming in Manitoba schools through residencies integrated into the school’s instructional schedule.
Schools are invited to select an artist from the 2018 Artists in the Schools Directory [PDF], and submit an application by May 15, 2018. There are over 60 programs to choose from in the Directory.
The Manitoba Arts Council will share the cost of the residency with successful applicants.
MAC’s contribution covers travel and living expenses during the artists’ residency, as well as a portion of the artist’s fee ($ 750 x week x artist). This contribution is paid directly to the artist.
Schools will cover the remaining portion of the artist fee ($ 450 x week x artist) as well as the cost of materials and rented equipment or instruments. Schools may need to cover extra travel costs in some cases.
