The Arts and Cultural Industries Association of Manitoba (ACI Manitoba) is an industry-led not for profit partnership organization that addresses skills development issues and implements solutions in the arts and creative industry sector of Manitoba. As the provincial sector council for the arts and creative industries, ACI Manitoba is funded by its association membership and three provincial government departments:

  • Education and Training
  • Sport, Culture, and Heritage
  • Families

ACI Manitoba works as a uniting element to engage employers, workers, educators, professional associations and government in a strategic alliance that is focused on implementing solutions to the specific skills and human resource needs that will enable the Manitoban arts and cultural sector to thrive. In support of this work, ACI Manitoba engages in research, needs assessments, and is developing directories of artists, creative workers, and organizations.

ACI Manitoba provides:

  • arts specific management and entrepreneurship training;
  • networking opportunities;
  • youth mentorship programs;
  • urban and rural Indigenous programming;
  • interactive web programming; and
  • infrastructure development for a wide range of Manitoba-based arts and cultural organizations, businesses and individual artists.

In 2013, we moved into 245 McDermot where we opened a shared workspace for individuals and businesses that value creativity and collaboration. The purpose of 245 McDermot is to help independent creative entrepreneurs with their business growth and to create a focal point for the creative industries in Manitoba. 245 McDermot offers flexible facilities ranging from classrooms and a Sacred Circle to “rent by the hour” hot desks to private offices and boardrooms with all of the amenities of a contemporary office. It is a place where you can make connections, share ideas, encourage peers, be inspired and work hard to move your creative venture forward.
