The Portage Daycare Centre received some funding from a Diversity and Inclusion Grant. Executive Director Lisa Voss says they immediately thought of Tina Monkman who does Indigenous paintings.

“We are very pleased to have Tina Monkman come in and do some artwork for us in our different sites throughout Portage Daycare. We received a grant from the provincial government of $500 per space, per site. We were able to spend some money on some beautiful artwork that Tina has done for us, whether it’s been canvas or murals on some of our walls within our buildings.”

Monkman says she’s from Selkirk and uses art to express herself as well as incorporate Indigenous themes throughout.
