Thank you to the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Greenhouse

Our program began as a pilot project with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Greenhouse. We are incredibly thankful for their support.

The Winnipeg Art Gallery was the place to be last month as our teams gathered for the first conference in-person in two years, and the very first for our incubator for digital arts and cultural entrepreneurship. In this photo, one of our favourites, we see a snapshot of youth being interviewed by CBC News about their work. Winnipeg has a truly incredible place for incubating the arts.

The @1860 Winnipeg Arts incubator project began during the pandemic as an emergent grassroots collective based in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 2020. We are a small group, passionate about exploring different approaches to digital arts and creative entrepreneurship.

Thank you to the Manitoba Arts Council 
Indigenous 360 Program

Our programming is made possible with support from the Manitoba Arts Council and the Indigenous 360 Program. We thank them for supporting our creative journey.

@1860 Winnipeg Arts was established through a pilot digital arts program generously funded by the Manitoba Arts Council Indigenous 360 Program. We thank them for their support in making our @1860 Winnipeg Arts collective program possible.

Thank you to our partners and supporters

When our program started in 2020, as a small grassroots project during the pandemic, we never thought we’d still be going almost four years later. We love to explore different aspects of the arts together with our partners and we can’t do it without support. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our generous partners, sponsors and supporters for making our @1860 Winnipeg Arts collective and its digital arts and entrepreneurship projects possible. 

We’re really excited to have our session proposal accepted for the Arctic Congress 2024 in Bodø, Norway. Our upcoming session is titled “Niriqatiginnga: Fostering Food Security and Innovation for Northern Supply Chains.”
