Kiyooka Ohe Arts Centre - Vision and Mission

We conceived the Centre as a non-profit public arts centre dedicated to the research, exhibition, education and documentation of contemporary visual arts


To be a leading non-profit arts centre and sculpture park that inspires and cultivates future generations of contemporary artists by providing opportunities to experience and create art in nature.


To continue Harry Kiyooka and Katie Ohe’s legacy of inspiring, educating, and enriching the community through arts education and artistic residency, showcasing contemporary visual art, and welcoming visitors to be inspired to create in a protected natural environment.


Legacy – We continue Harry and Katie’s legacy in our work and our decision making

Art Accessibility – we champion art and artists and provide opportunities for affordable public access to contemporary art and art education.

Community – We are a core contributor to the cultural and economic well-being of our region. As a gathering place with many offerings, we are committed to building a sense of community responding to all ages and demographics.

Land Stewardship – We acknowledge and respect the land on which we operate, situated on the traditional indigenous lands of many nations over millennia including honouring and acknowledging Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We are committed to working with sustainable programming that respects the natural environment.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: We are committed to ensuring both the principles and advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion, for our team members, volunteers, guests, and artists.
