About the Festival

Mission:

The Manitoba Fibre Festival creates an environment that brings together producers and crafts people to build up and support a growing fibre arts industry and community in Manitoba.

Intention:

We take pride in offering a friendly, supportive venue for learning new skills, for creative collaboration, and for celebrating local resources.

We value diversity and accessibility. At our events everyone is welcomed, accepted and respected; regardless of your age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, ability, national or ethnic origin, political or religious belief or non-belief.

The Manitoba Fibre Festival venue is located on Treaty 1 territory, the original land of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Metis Nation. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we wish to move forward in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration with Indigenous communities.
