Wayfinding: Street Art Project
Call for Proposals
Open to all artists / artist groups located within Manitoba
Proposal Deadline: June 19, 2015, 5pm
Event Date: August 7, 2015 ( August ‘First Friday’)
The Exchange District, AKA the ‘art district’, is made up of old turn-of-the-century buildings with little or no access for artists and audiences with mobility issues. ADNM is calling for proposals that offer creative ways to divert traffic from the “main”, inaccessible entrance of Fleet Galleries, 65 Albert Street, to a more inclusive accessible entrance – through the back alley, through a window, through another building. All possibilities will be considered!
This project is generously sponsored by the Winnipeg Arts Council and Windsor Plywood.

The Soapbox Series
Thank you to everyone who took part in The Soapbox Series.
The event was a great success, and we are happy that we were able to help initiate conversation about accessibility in the arts and identify concrete needs within the community. Our overall goal is to spur tangible changes within the arts community. After the series, we feel that much closer to reaching this goal.
