Capital Power, a long-time partner of the AGA, launched the Capital Power Indigenous Art Fund in 2023, which supports and celebrates Indigenous art and artists. In action of reconciliation, the Indigenous Art fund enables the AGA to create engaging opportunities for Albertans to connect with Indigenous culture and artistry.
Capital Power has been a lead sponsor of the AGA since the opening of the new building in January 2010 – helping present over 40 unique exhibitions and programs at the Gallery. Their support empowers the AGA to bring world-class art to Albertans and showcase Alberta art and artists to the world, while raising Edmonton’s national and international profile as the vibrant cultural centre that it is.
“Capital Power is proud to partner with the AGA to focus on the depth, breadth and beauty of Indigenous art and artists. As a world-class cultural facility, the AGA is an important space for our community to gather to celebrate Indigenous culture, art and history in the spirit of reconciliation.” – Kate Chisholm, Senior Vice President, Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer of Capital Power.
