Once more, with feeling!

QPOC Winnipeg and UMIH, with the support of MAWA, announce ROUND TWO of our creative microgrant funding.

Ten (10) microgrants worth $300 each are available to fund creative projects on the topic of CARE during Covid-19.

We seek project proposals from students and community members that will explore the multiple dimensions of care, caring, and being careful. This may include the (gendered and raced) labor of healthcare, the physical and/or emotional aspects of care, caring for or about a certain cause, or what it means to be careful in this moment of social distancing, for example. Projects that center queer and critical race approaches will be prioritized.

CARE microgrants are aimed at providing swift support for small projects influenced by the humanities (literature, film, theatre, history, philosophy, fine arts, law, music, etc.).

Possible submissions include proposals for:
--A poem (or a collection of poems)
--An essay (or a collection of essays)
--A song
--A brief drag performance
--A brief stand-up comedy set
--A photograph (or a collection of photographs)
--A personally meaningful recipe and accompanying tutorial video
--A painting, drawing, or cartoon
--A sculpture, collage, short film, or multimedia project
--Other creative ideas welcome

Projects must adhere to Manitoba social distancing guidelines.

Open to University of Manitoba students and all residents of Manitoba (Indigenous peoples, settlers, and visitors). QTBIPOC applicants are especially welcome.
