ADNM T-Shirts

Created by the Give T-Shirt Company, the ADNM shirts are an ode to the dream of complete artistic freedom for all. Art that is free of barriers, free of prejudice and preconceptions, and art that nurtures and celebrates the unique talents and perspective of those who learn to live and create differently.

Shirts are available through the ADNM Webstore. All proceeds go towards advancing accessible arts in Manitoba.

Website Updates: New Event Calendar

Good news! ADNM now has a brand new Event Calendar! If you go to the Calendar Page now you can see that we've switched to Google Calendar. This is going to make it much easier for us to keep you up to date on all the comings, goings, and doings around the city, the province and beyond. The calendar also give us the ability to share more information about each event, including external links, directions, and more. It also allows you to print off events and even save them to your own Google Calendar if you use the app yourself.

More updates are coming soon, and a full overhaul is being worked on as well with hopes to have it ready to launch by the end of the year. Stay tuned for more!

Art is Able Lecture on YouTube

Did you miss the ADNM/MAWA Art is Able lecture on November 6? Fear not! ADNM is proud to announce that we now have a YouTube channel and you can watch the lecture in its entirety there.

From now on we are planning to record as many of these lectures, talks, and other events as possible so we can share them with members and supporters who cannot come to the events themselves.
