Inuit Sanaugangit tour at the Qaumajuq
This is a new exhibit that opens in April.
Representing artwork from many international regions and communities across the Circumpolar North, the artwork within Inuit Sanaugangit displays a variety of contemporary and early Inuit art in various mediums.  You will learn about the artists, artworks, and themes represented in this unique exhibition.  Themes found throughout this exhibition include traditional and contemporary ways of life in circumpolar communities, the impact and concerns for climate change, as well as traditional Inuit stories.
After the tour, people are free to continue browsing within the Qaumajuq gallery and/or at other exhibits within the WAG.
There are storage lockers available for purses (etc).

Cost: The cost of the tour guide is $90, divided by the number of Grey Hares who register for the tour. Heather will collect the tour guide fee.
There is also a fee for admission to the WAG, paid by each participant: $18 for up to 65 years, $15 for 65 and over. We will receive a slight group discount on our WAG admission fee. Indigenous peoples and WAG members have free admission.

Lunch: There are several places to eat within walking distance, including the Katita café in the WAG.
If you plan to leave the WAG for lunch and return for more browsing later, please remember to ask for a receipt when you pay your entry fee.
