For performing artists wanting to tour Manitoba, your best bet is to apply for being selected to showcase for arts organizations at MB Showcase. Applications are open to performers of all types, from music (traditional, contemporary, classical, jazz, hip hop etc.), to dance, theatre, magic and variety acts. Manitoba Showcase 2020 will be held October 22nd-25th, 2020 in Gimli, Manitoba, and will feature 15 - 20 performing artists.

Artists are selected by a jury to perform in three live showcases for an audience of arts organizations (presenters) seeking to book acts to tour to their communities in 2021/22. Following the conference, Manitoba Arts Network coordinates block booked tours of the showcasing artists throughout the province based on interest generated at the MB Showcase.

Besides being an opportunity to showcase, the conference also features seminars, workshops, visual art exhibitions, one on one meetings, an artist trade-show exhibit room and networking events, all focused towards connecting artists, agents, industry professionals, and arts presenters. It's a weekend of entertainment, inspiration and the ultimate place to connect with artists, presenters, industry professionals, colleagues and friends.

Manitoba Arts Network is the only organization that showcases and coordinates tours in Manitoba, generating $120,000 - $180,000 in artist fees throughout the year. Showcasing artists can receive up to four years of on-going bookings based on their performance at MB Showcase.

Extended deadline to apply is now May 15, 2020.
