Creative Interventions at the University of Winnipeg
This tour will look at the history of the University of Winnipeg as an urban campus. In 1967 when the University of Winnipeg became independent from the University of Manitoba, it forged its identity as a university responding to the needs of the city. We will trace the University administrations’ efforts to democratize education over the years through art and architectural interventions. We will look at a few buildings on the main campus, as well as some public art; the Buhler building which houses Plug In; Hudsons Bay Building; and the WAG-Qaumajuq.
