Indigenous Engagement

Glenbow Reimagined

Glenbow is undergoing a complete renovation that will transform our 45-year-old building from the inside out. To help guide the planning and design of the future Glenbow, we are initiating an Indigenous engagement process and inviting Indigenous Elders, leaders, and cultural Knowledge Keepers to participate.

Through a series of group meetings, discussions, one-on-one interviews and surveys with Indigenous engagement participants, the Glenbow will engage local, regional and national Indigenous perspectives.

Glenbow’s new Indigenous engagement process will inform the short and long-term planning and strategic vision of the museum by ensuring meaningful incorporation of Indigenous knowledge and perspectives into Glenbow Museum’s building design, space allocation, programming, and operations.

The engagement process reflects Glenbow’s understanding of the importance of relationships in the care of cultural belongings and is based on the foundation of promoting reconciliation and building knowledge and understanding of Indigenous perspectives. Incorporating reconciliation into museum practices will guide meaningful engagement with Indigenous peoples with positive impacts for the museum, their Indigenous stakeholders and the partnership between the two.
