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.

Join us as we unveil the winning Wayfinding: Street Art Project Design on July 8th at Parlour Coffee.

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 will unveil the winning design that will inform, direct and engage patrons in an artful and creative way, while also demonstrating the practical needs of people with disabilities.

This project is generously sponsored by the Winnipeg Arts Council and Windsor Plywood. Unveiling Party Partner: Parlour Coffee

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.
