The Winnipeg Art Gallery and the team of curators behind INUA, are pleased to announce a new online platform that invites the public to experience INUA virtually. 

Made possible by the exhibition’s presenting sponsor RBC, INUA Online features an immersive 360° tour of the gallery space, detailed background on each artist, and access to a growing library of virtual sessions. A central feature of the new site is an in‐depth audio companion to INUA, which allows visitors to hear the stories behind key artworks, directly from Inuit voices. 

The audio companion was created in partnership with the Inuit Futures in Arts Leadership: The Pilimmaksarniq/Pijariuqsarniq Project, an initiative that provides innovative, hands‐on mentorship and training opportunities across the north and south for Inuit and Inuvialuit working in the arts. 

INUA brings together more than 90 Inuit artists from across the Arctic, urban south, and circumpolar communities. New audio and video of the artists and their works will continue to be added to the Exhibit on a regular basis until March 2022.
