Community Campaign Coordinator – Inuit Art Centre

  • Full-time
  • Winnipeg

Website Winnipeg Art Gallery

deadline: September 21, 2018

The Winnipeg Art Gallery is home to the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art in the world. To celebrate the art and to honour Inuit people and culture, the WAG is building an Inuit Art Centre, the first of its kind anywhere.

The Centre and its accompanying programming will function as a conduit, connecting people from the North and South. It will serve as a venue for exhibitions and programs, research and learning, studio practice and art-making. These activities provide a unique opportunity to learn about Inuit history, culture, and Canada as a whole.

As a home to promote reconciliation, the Inuit Art Centre will enhance the way we learn about culture and history, as well as the Arctic. We hope to raise a more knowledgeable and caring generation who know only a time when Indigenous people, their culture, and livelihoods are respected and understood.

As the only Centre of its kind in the world, this is an important project for our Province. And we’re looking for the right person to join the team to help ensure the Centre becomes a reality.
