SOCAN members Royal Wood and Andrew Collins are just a few of the musicians set to perform at the multi-disciplinary Manitoba Showcase 2018, to be held at the William Glesby Centre and the Portage and District Arts Centre in Portage la Prairie, MB, from Oct. 25-28, 2018.
The 18th annual edition of the conference will present five different musical performance showcases, featuring 15 acts from across Canada; daily music and arts seminars/workshops; and a three-day visual art exhibition. Manitoba Showcase 2018 aims to bring together communities, arts organizations, artists, and the public, all in celebration of artistic ability.

This year marks the launch of the Indigenous Special Project, created by the Manitoba Arts Network and funded by Canadian Heritage. The program provides financial assistance for musicians from five Indigenous communities to attend Manitoba Showcase 2018, not only as delegates, but also to evaluate fellow musicians who they might engage to play shows in their home communities.
