Tour 150 will invite schools and communities to learn about contemporary art and artists from the four regions of Nunangat, the Inuit homeland in Canada. Through prints, textiles, stone sculptures, and audiovisual stories shared in Inuit voices, viewers will leave the experience with a greater understanding of our land and its people. And the best part is…we are bringing art to you!
This fully accessible exhibition will travel across Manitoba this July through October to bring an inspiring collection of Inuit art directly to your community and schools! Download and print the activity booklet here.
Space required to host this exhibit includes a large parking spot for the vehicle and space for a 10’x10’ tent, where tables and chairs will be set up for learning experiences. Multiple configurations are possible.
We can’t wait to connect you to the new WAG-Qaumajuq!
