Exhibit Applications from Artists and Community Groups
Every year, the Northern Heritage Centre hosts and assists with the presentation of temporary exhibits developed by Northwest Territories artists, youth and organizations.
The PWNHC Exhibition Program embraces a variety of temporary exhibitions that interpret the human and natural history of the Northwest Territories, including art and culture, as well as other topics. Exhibitions should present focused topics in an engaging, meaningful, and educational manner for Northwest Territories residents and visitors.
There are two categories for exhibition space:
1. Community Exhibits
If you are part of a community group or project, you can submit an exhibit idea for the Community Display Area.
This space is open to any community in the NWT and is dedicated to hosting small exhibits by community groups & organizations, or for celebrating special projects.
If you have an idea for a display for your community group or event that you would like to showcase, contact our Education & Outreach Office (Tel: 867-767-9347 x 71245).
2. Contemporary Art Exhibits
If you have a special project you would like to exhibit (e.g., fine art, craft, research, photo etc.), please submit a Contemporary Art Exhibit Application.
Contemporary Art Exhibitions are scheduled 1-2 years in advance over a multi-year period to ensure a balanced presentation of themes and media. Temporary exhibit proposals are accepted on an ongoing basis with annual submission deadlines of April 1st, September 1st, and December 1st.
If you have questions about submitting exhibits, please call 867-767-9347 x 71195.
