The Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) has supported a provincial travelling exhibitions (TREX) program since 1981 to provide as many communities as possible across Alberta with the opportunity to see visual art exhibitions. We welcome Northwest Alberta venues of all kinds, including schools, libraries, theatres, archives, museums, galleries, community centres, health centres, visitor centres, and to book month-long exhibitions for their community using the request form. Exhibition themes are varied to suit every audience, with historic and contemporary artwork in a wide range of media. Each exhibition comes with an educator’s guide that provides exhibition interpretation, curriculum connections, creative activities, and relevant historical information. Plus, the guides are available in a PDF format making exhibition information and lesson plans easily accessible for printing and Smartboards. Exhibitions are designed for ease of handling and may be displayed in different ways depending on the type and amount of space available.
We look forward to serving your community!
Three regional galleries and one arts organization coordinate the program for the AFA:
The Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX) acknowledge that the artistic activity we support takes place on the territories of Treaty 6, 7 and 8. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived on and cared for these lands for generations and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers, Elders and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on. We reaffirm our commitment to strengthening our relationships with Indigenous communities and growing our shared knowledge and understanding.
