Qaumajuq is an innovative new museum, home of the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art in the world. This first-of-its-kind centre connects to the WAG on all levels, creating a 185,000-square-foot cultural campus in the heart of downtown Winnipeg.

Qaumajuq bridges Canada’s North and South through exhibitions, research, education, and art making. A community of artists, Indigenous advisors, partners, and stakeholders have collaborated to envision and build a vibrant gathering place where all are welcome and where everyone’s stories are told and heard in a true spirit of reconciliation.

NOW OPEN! Watch the virtual celebration:

On May 10 and 11, the Architectural Institute of British Columbia will be virtually hosting AIBC Confab, an online event which provides engaging content for architectural professionals in a streamlined format. Participants will be able to virtually attend seminars and an interactive workshop, which explore topics highly relevant to today’s architectural practice – such as green building, housing initiatives, the impact of COVID- 19 on design, and more. Confab 2021 also features two plenaries, which will be delivered by international interdisciplinary speakers.
