Annual Report: April 2016 – March 2017

A message from the Board Chair

“On behalf of Artists in Healthcare Manitoba, I am pleased to provide you with our Annual Report for 2016/2017

In the past year, we were delighted to see the work we have done at Selkirk Mental Health Centre culminate in a Sarasvati production held at the Asper Centre for Theatre and Film. The production also toured Manitoba high schools, doing important work to open communication addressing the stigma and marginalization associated with mental illness.

The Art in Hospitals program was introduced to the community with hundreds of pieces of Indigenous Woodlands art being donated to Winnipeg hospitals and Selkirk Mental Health Centre. This program invites donors to gift art works to the facilities of their choice, to be used by the hospitals as they deem fit. Details will be provided further on in this report. As in past years, we continue to see the profound effects and outcomes live music and visual


arts bring to the communities of healthcare, and our ongoing vision is to one day, see our programs in every hospital in the City of Winnipeg and the Province of Manitoba.”
