2023 First Nations-led Grant, $25,000
Our Business: Aboriginal Art Centre Forum
The Aboriginal Art Centre Forums delivered by AACHWA have a big emphasis on arts sector business development and strengthening partnerships within the arts centre network. AACHWA has a very small team that works hard to support this network of 25 arts centres.
In 2023, Mannifera contributed a grant of $25,000 towards their ‘Our Business’ forum – a four-day professional development program for art centre staff, board directors and artists. The focus will be on building the capacity of art centre and partnership development.
