Rooftop Media Lab
Alongside the new WAG Inuit Art Centre, you’ll enjoy new art-making studios on the entire Penthouse floor of the existing WAG building. One of those spaces is a new digital media lab, which was dreamt up through a collaboration of students from Sisler High School with the WAG.
This beautiful education suite of seven studios features upgraded spaces, amenities, and natural sunlight, with room to expand classrooms onto the outdoor rooftop.
There will be expanded public art classes for every age and ability, including digital media, drawing, painting, mixed media, clay, and more! In the new Interactive Digital Media Lab, students will be able to create using a variety of new media applications, including Augmented Reality, 3-D renderings, and virtual gaming. Artists, academics, activists, and technologists together will create, collaborate, and explore the convergence of technology and art.
It will be a community hub and incubator for new media art creation and WAG Inuit Art Centre programming.
The Interactive Digital Media Lab will offer sessional courses, workshops, pop-up events, residencies, and symposia dedicated to innovative design and interactive programs for the study and appreciation of art.
