**All MAWA Bootcamps are presented in partnership with Creative Manitoba.**
Artist Bootcamps are a series of single-evening workshops on professional art practices. In this past these sessions have explored how to put together an exhibition proposal (with Curator Mary Reid), how to decide if you want to go to grad school (with Concordia University Graduate Instructor Eleanor Bond), how to promote your work via the media (with freelance journalists and art critics Jenny Henkelman and Stacey Abramson), and how to build your own website using on-line resources (with web mistress Pamela Habing). These brass-tacks skills sessions are particularly beneficial for emerging artists. In addition, participants benefit from the networking opportunities the group setting provides.
