For the first time, the then 13 year-old Inner City Student Art Conference is held at the WAG rather than the customary school gym.

For this project, the WAG partners with the Winnipeg School Division, an organization with a relationship to the Gallery dating back to 1937 when the WAG provided art classes to students from the division. “The teachers said the students got real inspiration from taking the children through the exhibitions and seeing the real objects…there is no substitute for the real thing when it comes to children’s experience of art.” (June 25, Winnipeg Free Press).
