Incubator@1864 is an experimental design studio and urban Indigenous cultural entrepreneurship resource in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We support youth and Elders across multiple land claims regions, from Northwestern Ontario to Nunavut and Manitoba. Most of our programming is delivered in Inuktitut and English.
Established in 2019, Incubator@1864 works with artists and researchers, academics and entrepreneurs to explore new directions and opportunities for Indigenous research, development and entrepreneurship in the digital and creative sectors.
A special thanks go out to this year’s mentors from the arts and business communities: Giovanna Mingarelli (MC2, Inc., Global Dignity); Tara Baswani and Remi Lemieux (Lembas Works, Cirque du Soleil); Morris Hayes (New Power Generation, Global Groove for Peace); Tara Tootoo Fotheringham and Dorothy Tootoo (Arctic Buying Company, Inc.). We greatly appreciate their guidance and inspiration.
