Liberals aim to help fund cultural hub in Winnipeg

WINNIPEG — The federal government has announced it will contribute $4 million that will to go towards an arts and culture hub in Winnipeg.

The Market Lands project, led by CentreVenture Development Corporation, will be a new mixed-use highrise building, with eight floors of apartments above a two-floor creative hub. 

The funding comes from Canada Cultural Spaces Fund. It will help pay for the facility’s 20,000-square-foot, two-floor creative hub component. The hub will include spaces for three artist-run centres and a sector council for creative industries as well as multi-use shared spaces. It is expected to be complete in the summer of 2024.

“Our government knows that artists and creators need vibrant, functional and supportive spaces in which to develop and share their talents with Canadians and the world,” said Steven Guilbeault, minister of Canadian heritage, in a statement. “Creative hubs are all about bringing together people —artists, cultural entrepreneurs and organizations — in spaces that encourage development and collaboration, and that will help grow the creative economy.”
