Wanuskewin Galleries Mission Statement
Wanuskewin Galleries provides gallery space in which Indigenous artists can present and develop their work on both a professional and creative level. We are committed to showcasing the work of Indigenous artists, curators and creators, uniquely suited with Indigenous consultation and control to give an accurate representation of Indigenous ways of knowing.
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. We will facilitate the development, presentation and promotion of works by contemporary and traditional Indigenous artists, along with historical exhibits, allowing the preservation of Indigenous artistic practices and allowing Indigenous self-determination and self-representation.

With the temporary closure of Wanuskewin right now due to the COVID-19 measures, the galleries will be closed to the public until the fall.
