Indigenous Artwalk

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

The Winnipeg Downtown BIZ has launched a new project to showcase Indigenous art and make Downtown Winnipeg look more welcoming. This artwalk program is the first of its kind in Winnipeg.

The new artwalk will feature 12 pieces of Indigenous artwork at 12 different storefronts. Each artwork features the theme ‘welcome’ with the goal of bridging communities in Winnipeg.

The Aboriginal People’s Advisory Committee says this will be a great opportunity for people to see the diversity of Indigenous culture.

From May until August, the 12-stop artwalk starts at Bison Books at 424 Graham Avenue. It continues east on Portage Avenue, stopping at Portage Place Shopping Centre, APTN, ALT Hotel,  Manitoba Chamber of Commerce, and more storefronts.

For more information, please visit Winnipeg Downtown BIZ – Indigenous Artwalk.
