What we are working on and how your donations make things happen. Our three…

Urban’s BIG moving plans still in the works…

The future Market Lands hub, located in the iconic Exchange District in Winnipeg, is expected to be completed by summer 2024 and will feature three artist-run centres, multi-use shared spaces, and more. With the exciting news of our future, and literally a NEW space, we are starting to get ready for moving into our new home! Moving costs and new office furniture are on our wish list.

Inclusion of Manitoba Indigenous languages all year round…

For the past four years Urban has been featuring Manitoba Indigenous languages in our program materials and writings about the shows we exhibit.  We want to continue seeing Indigenous languages prominently featured after our language initiative projects Sacred Sounds, The Speech Act and More Than Words are completed. Your generosity will contribute to the translation costs of our language initiatives for upcoming programming years.

Online and in person ASL resources for the public…

As we expand our endeavors to make learning about contemporary Aboriginal art accessible for the public, we’d like to provide ASL for our artist talks and online webinars.

Remember June is the month to donate, and July 1 we find out who gets the draw!
