Winnipeggers know and love their reputation as a centre for artistic expression and excellence. There is a large creative community that feeds this dynamism we all thrive within - actors, technicians, dancers, writers, musicians, and filmmakers (to name a few) who enrich our lives every day and keep us on the world stage. Yet, the vast majority of those artists won’t have the means by which to afford housing as they age.
PAL Winnipeg is a not for profit, registered charitable organization dedicated to providing affordable housing and support services for older members of our community particularly those individuals in the performing and allied professions.
Some of the most vulnerable people in our community are those involved with the performing arts. PAL considers these cultural pioneers a priority for PAL residency since the erratic employment and overall low income endemic within the performing arts industry has prevented many from establishing sufficient pensions or retirement funds on which to draw in later years.
To address this situation, PAL Winnipeg is working to build a Performing Arts Lodge in our community to provide senior members of the performing arts community with a safe and secure home in an affordable and supportive environment.
