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. 

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.
