U of W partners with WAG to expand classroom space

  • Print

The Winnipeg Art Gallery and The University of Winnipeg have entered into a partnership that will see 400 students take classes at the WASG this year -- 80 of whom would otherwise have gone on waiting lists.

Students from the Faculties of Arts, Science, Business, and Economics and the university’s Professional and Applied Continuing Education Division will use the WAG’s Muriel Richardson Auditorium as classroom space for the fall and winter terms of the 2013/2014 academic year.

"The WAG and the University of Winnipeg have a long relationship going back many years," said WAG director and CEO Stephen Borys, who is a graduate of U of W and an adjunct professor in the history department. "We already have academic ties with University of Winnipeg in that our curators teach classes in (the) Masters degree in the Curatorial Studies program. This new partnership represents an opportunity to forge even stronger ties."

The WAG will also provide free admission passes to the students attending classes there, to bursary fund recipients through the UWinnipeg’s Opportunity Fund, and others.
