Welcome to the Winnipeg Arts Council's online application page for grants to individuals.

This website is currently used for the Individual Artist and Professional Development grants ONLY. To apply for a Winnipeg Arts Council grant using this website you will need to create a profile. Click "Login" on the menu above to sign in or create a profile.

Project Grants for organizations and collectives will continue to apply using the forms found on the WAC website. If you are unsure about which program you should be applying to or which process you should use, please contact Dominic Lloyd, Program & Arts Development Manager at the WAC office.



The Individual Artist Grant supports the creation of new work in any art form, or the development, production, curation, or exhibition of works of art by Winnipeg artists. Artists working as part of a collective to produce non-individual works including Fringe Festival or other theatre productions should apply to the Project Grant program rather than the Individual Artist Grant program. Collectives must contact the Winnipeg Arts Council before applying to confirm eligibility.

The Professional Development Grant Program is designed to provide support to artists and arts administrators for activities that contribute to their professional development and enhance their careers in the arts. These activities may include: unique opportunities for short-term study (beyond basic training) in a formal or informal setting; attendance at events where the work of the applicant is to be presented or where the applicant is an invited speaker or resource person; or travel that is a component of such activities.
