How to Donate
Your gift helps WAG-Qaumajuq continue to bring people together through the universal language of art.
The Gallery holds in trust the world’s largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art. To celebrate this art and honour the Inuit, Qaumajuq is the first centre of its kind. Now open, Qaumajuq bridges Canada’s North and South through exhibitions, research, education, and art making. To date, this $65 million project has received incredible support, but we still need your help. We invite you to join the visionary group of supporters who believe in the power of shared art and culture to connect people and create a better future.
