Urban Art Centres Operating Support Program

The Urban Art Centres Operating Support program provides financial assistance to established community‑based, not-for-profit arts and cultural organizations delivering arts-based programming, in any of the arts disciplines, to targeted (underserved or underrepresented), (high‑need/high-risk) urban communities in Manitoba and which have little or no capacity for revenue generation or direct cost recovery through program delivery.

These organizations offer arts-based programs that: help to nourish personal and social development; contribute to healthy lifestyles in safe environments; and provide opportunities for targeted individuals to be engaged citizens and to play active roles in community revitalization.
