Concept

BREAKING
GROUND SOON

As Canada searches for roads to meaningful reconciliation, we all have a role to play. The Inuit Art Centre will open new paths to healing as it connects North and South, and brings us together to meet, share, create, and understand.

The Centre will be the first of its kind, a world-class cultural landmark that is home to the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art on earth. Here, over 13,000 pieces of contemporary and traditional artworks will be displayed as a complete collection for the first time ever.

WAG Studio

Established in 1937, WAG Studio is one of Canada’s oldest gallery-run art-making programs. As the WAG works towards the creation of the Inuit Art Centre, the Gallery remains committed to art education, a pillar of our mission. The Inuit Art Centre will replace the current WAG Studio building, enabling education programs to expand with larger and more versatile spaces. The new Centre will allow visitors to create and learn about art in an entirely new way, as we quadruple the number of spaces for students through the use of art studios, maker-spaces, interactive galleries, and global classrooms.
