Over the Top is a fantastic mix of art and mayhem, sugary goodness and fun! Every March MAWA hosts our largest annual fundraiser in the form of a cupcake-fueled art auction. What’s not to like about over 1,000 cupcakes, amazing artworks from over 100 artists, stellar raffle baskets and more?

Over the Top brings together over 400 young professionals, artists and art collectors to MAWA, who bid on artwork, buy raffle tickets and devour delicious cupcakes. Last year, over 150 artists donated 156 works of art and 43 bakers donated 103 dozen cupcakes. You’ll be sure to meet every Winnipegger with a sweet tooth for art!

As a not-for-profit, registered charity, the Over the Top event is our most important fundraising venture. In 2015 it raised over $33,000, which is 12% of our annual budget! These funds are crucial in enabling us to provide professional, engaging and relevant art-based programming, such as our Mentorship Programs, Critical Discussion Groups, Skills-Based Workshops, Artist Lectures and more!
