MAWA offers our urban, loft-style apartment to women and gender diverse visual artists. Applicants can use this space and time for research, reflection, networking and/or production.

The MAWA residency program is intended to increase dialogue between our geographical community—Winnipeg—and the art world beyond; to create networking opportunities for women and gender diverse artists; and to provide an oasis in which they can do whatever they need to do in order to move their practices forward.

Deadline for national and international applicants is now closed.

Thanks to everyone who applied.

Deadline for rural applicants from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Northern Ontario: anytime.

For residencies of 3-14 days in length in Nov-Dec 2022 and Jan-April 2023. Details on the residency and how to apply here.
