FOOD SECTOR

This summer youth program empowers the next generation through hands-on experiences in entrepreneurship and food product development, fostering innovation and leadership skills. With a focus on creativity and collaboration, arts-based approaches inspire young minds to shape a brighter future with the food sector.

A new food sector entrepreneurship program is starting up this summer in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In the coming months, a small group of youth artists studying entrepreneurship with the non-profit organization Niriqatiginnga are designing, marketing and selling a special edition line of homemade jams for the fall and holiday season.

@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.”

Our program began with a pilot program aimed at building organizational capacity for digital arts administration, skills development and training. It is supported by the non-profit organization Niriqatiginnga and the Amautiit Nunavut Inuit Women’s Association.
