Partners

The WAG is working with national and international Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners to create a new kind of art museum. Made possible through the generous support of our donors, the world-class WAG Inuit Art Centre will be an invitation to experience objects, artworks, images and ideas in transformative ways.

Together, we are creating a place where Inuit and non-Inuit can gather, tell stories, listen to each other, and be inspired to create new pathways of understanding; a place of community, where everyone’s voice is welcome and valued.

We are developing programs and exhibitions to bring global attention to Inuit people, history and communities through the powerful voices of Inuit art.
