An invitation to explore forming a permanent arts and creative industries coalition

Proposed Purpose
– Culture Manitoba would be a member-based coalition seeking to provide Manitoba’s arts, heritage, cultural and creative industries with representation by working together to identify priorities, share information and advocate on behalf of the sector.

Proposed Vision – Taking a collaborative approach, Culture Manitoba would aim to create a unified voice for the arts, heritage, cultural and creative industries. It would monitor public policy, share information, elaborate on priority areas and key conversations, synthesize issues for members, and represent the expertise and interests of the sector to various stakeholders, including multiple levels of government, funders, business, the education sector and the public.
