Watch now: Diversifying the Collection - Celebrating 50 years of the AFA Art Collection

Date: Sep 22, 2023

The AFA Art Collection is evolving to include more artistic practices and artists from Alberta's many unique backgrounds and communities.

Artists Adrian Stimson, Kari Woo, Matt Gould, and Karrie Arthurs describe their work and what it means for them to be included in the Collection.

Diversifying the Collection is one reason why the AFA established its pluralism policy to meet Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility (EDIA) goals. Learn more about how the AFA is expanding who (and what!) is represented in the collection.

This is the fourth episode of a five-part series about the AFA Art Collection.
