Sundays - Thursdays
Join us in celebrating Qaumajuq365, the Inuit art centre’s inaugural year! The Northern Lights-inspired projections are on Sunday-Thursday through to the end of March!

We’re illuminating the two connected WAG-Qaumajuq buildings! The Northern Lights will continue most evenings (6-10pm) this winter and evolve into projections of Inuit imagery closer to the opening of Qaumajuq in early 2021. The launch date of Qaumajuq will be announced soon…stay tuned! In the meantime, come check out the lights and peek inside from the street to the Visible Vault!

Beginning February 26, a curated series of video projections will be displayed on WAG-Qaumajuq! These special projections will be on Friday and Saturday evenings until the end of March.

And don’t miss the newly unveiled sculptures by Inuit artist, Goota Ashoona titled Tuniigusiia/The Gift and Abraham Anghik Ruben titled Time to Play!

 

The meaning of Qaumajuq (pronounced KOW-ma-yourq or HOW-ma-yourk) is “it is bright, it is lit” in Inuktitut, inspired by the light that pours into the new building designed to reflect the forms, land, and light of the North. This theme of light will carry through a year of celebrations! Watch our website for all the ways you can take part – virtually and in person when it’s safe. ⁠

WAG-Qaumajuq is located at 300 Memorial Blvd in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

A big thank you to Eventlight.ca for installing our Northern Lights!
