Maker-in-Residence Program

Connecting professional makers with the public

The Maker-in-Residence program is based out of the ideaMILL Makerspace at the Millennium Library. It connects library visitors with Winnipeg-based professional makers and gives space for makers to work on their art in a creative learning environment.

Makers chosen for this program embody the maker philosophy of learning through doing. They are passionate about their art and sharing it with community, skilled in teaching others, able to work with people from many backgrounds, and enjoy working in a team environment.


Makers-in-Residence engage with community members and have access to ideaMILL equipment and staff assistance throughout their residency. They:

  • Join the ideaMILL team at the Millennium Library at least 9-hours/week where they have dedicated time to work on their art project(s).
  • Start and finish a new project to be displayed at the Millennium Library for a period after their residency as a source of inspiration for library visitors.
  • Offer regularly scheduled drop-in sessions at libraries throughout the city. During these sessions, library visitors and staff can learn about the maker's practice and medium(s), ask questions, and learn new skills.
  • Develop and deliver registered workshops for youth and adults to introduce participants to their art practice (including the tools, materials, and methods they use) and provide them with the opportunity to explore it.

Makers-in-Residence are provided with a monthly stipend.
