A bridge to First Nations arts and culture
Located on Place Jacques-Cartier, in the heart of Old Montréal, the Ashukan Cultural Space opened in May. It includes an exhibition hall, a boutique and a training centre promoting the integration of Aboriginal artists into the international art market.
Traditional carvings, landscape paintings,original jewelry and many other arts and crafts are on exhibit or for sale. The centre is accessible to the general public—to local art lovers and tourists alike—as a place for sharing and dialogue that promotes the greater recognition of Aboriginal art and culture.
The Ashukan Cultural Space is managed by Sacred Fire Productions, a not-for-profit organization that supports the professional, economic, personal and social development of Aboriginal artists.
