Mujer Artista Winnipeg Open House
Sat Oct 3, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Mujer Artista is a new, time-limited initiative in Winnipeg to develop opportunities for local Latin women artists. It will support collective dialogue, mentorship and reflection on the impact of our common histories.
This initiative has been developed by Winnipeg-based artists Cecilia Araneda, Monica Martinez and Praba Pilar. It was created out of the need they identified to better support Latin women artists locally, as these artists often work in isolation without system support due to language and culture barriers.
Specifically, Mujer Artista aims to:
- Promote the development and recognition of local Latin women artists
- Enhance public access and cultivate audiences
- Advance professional development, networking, dialogue and knowledge-sharing
- Strengthen connections out into the broader arts community.
Mujer Artista is in its initial stages of development and invites all Latin women artists in Winnipeg working in all contexts (professional to amateur to traditional crafts, etc.) to attend our open house on Saturday, October, 2015, 1 pm to 3 pm, at MAWA: Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art (611 Main Street, Winnipeg)

Mujer Artista acknowledges the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts and MAWA.
