Wanuskewin Galleries Mission Statement

Wanuskewin Galleries ensure that perspectives on the past offered by Wanuskewin Heritage Park an interpretive centre are complemented by contemporary expressions by Indigenous people.

The Galleries showcase the work of Indigenous artists whose practices and productions connect to the natural, cultural, and socio-political histories, issues, and future of the Northern Plains. The Galleries are venues for professional artists who are recognized as such by their peers, as well as for curators who focus on Indigenous historical, traditional and contemporary art.

Wanuskewin Galleries will develop, present and promote media, visual and performance art by contemporary and traditional Indigenous artists, framing all programming and exhibitions within Indigenous worldviews.
