THE WORLD’S ONLY VISIBLE VAULT OF ITS KIND.
“I hope you’ll join me in helping to build this important and iconic museum. Qaumajuq will soon celebrate its grand opening and I know that, like me, you will feel enormously proud when you walk through the doors and can say, ‘I helped create this’.” —Bob Williams
Adopt a Shelf
You can help realize Qaumajuq by adopting a shelf in the Visible Vault! Right now, the Richardson Foundation is matching your gift to Qaumajuq, including shelf adoptions.
You will be recognized on electronic signage located near the vault, with a message of your choice, and can use the space to honour loved ones, to mark a special occasion, or to show your organization’s support for this community project. Adopt for $2,020 per shelf, only 492 spots available. A tax receipt will be issued for the full gift amount.
Explore the Vault!
The Visible Vault features an innovative, interactive digital platform made possible with support from the Canada Council for the Arts. Access thousands of carvings from the world’s largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art, and learn more about the stories behind these works direct from the artists and communities. The platform includes short videos, sound recordings and photographs and provides a variety of intergenerational perspectives from Inuit artists, elders, knowledge keepers, storytellers, youth, and other community members.
