Coming to a stop near you – Nakatamaakewin: Bringing art to you!

Celebrating the WAG’s world class collection of Inuit art at Qaumajuq, this exhibition offers an exciting selection of original prints, textiles, stone sculptures, and audiovisual stories shared by Inuit voices, that will allow visitors of all ages to experience a greater understanding of Inuit art and culture, the land, and its people. And the best part is…we are bringing art to you!

Thanks to support from Manitoba 150 this year, this unique and fully accessible mobile exhibition will travel across Manitoba this May through September 2022 to bring an inspiring collection of Inuit art directly to your community and schools! Take a look at this year’s 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!
