There used to be one door to get in, and now there are three. And lots of windows, so you can see what’s inside before you walk in. If you’re Indigenous or 25 or under, your membership is FREE for the inaugural year of WAG-Qaumajuq. For everyone, the entire main floor will be FREE, so you can just hang out—with or without the art.
You’re the placemakers—you make us better—keep telling us what we can do to make this place yours.
We want to build change
Among the top things that WAG is doing differently with the opening of Qaumajuq:
- Making the entire main floor of the new WAG-Qaumajuq free to everyone
- Providing free memberships to anyone 25 or under, a pilot for the inaugural year
- Offering free admission and memberships to all Indigenous people
- Installing floor-to-ceiling glass windows to allow people driving or walking by to see inside
- Expanding the normal single entrance to three entrances, allowing more ways to enter
- Adding main floor café
- Adding a street level entrance to the main floor gift shop, now open for curbside pick-up

More changes @ WAG-Qaumajuq
The WAG announced a new name for the Inuit art centre: Qaumajuq, meaning “it is bright, it is lit” in Inuktitut, which celebrates the light that flows into the new building connected to the WAG.
You asked for projections to be featured on the outside of the building and we did that! Check out Qaumajuq365 and stop by from 5-10pm to see the Northern Lights from downtown Winnipeg!
