Woodland Cultural Centre
As part of the Woodland Cultuaral Centre, the Museum has been presenting contemporary First Nations artists practicing in all creative fields to local, national and global audiences for over forty years. The context in which works are presented at the Centre is unique, as we are a First Nations run arts organization with close ties to our Ongwehongwe communities. The Centre strives to be a presenter and advocate for all First Nations art. Our guiding directive is to be a support organization for the diverse creations by contemporary First Nations artists. A collection was established and has grown considerably since its installation. The Centre has been seen and is still considered as one of the foremost leaders and experts in First Nations art. The staff continually strive to seek out emerging First Nations artists, as well as continuing to support mid-career and established artists through the presentation and promotion of their work.
