Stride Gallery is located in Mohkinstsis, the traditional territories of Treaty 7 people. Our activities take place on the land that is and has been from time immemorial stewarded and cared for by the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Iyarhe/Stoney Nakoda people comprising the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations. The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
Stride is a non-for-profit artist run centre that values experimental, risk-taking art work, and fosters community conversation and participation.
Stride provides gallery exhibition spaces as well as research and presentation opportunities for diverse art projects that encourage the reconsideration and reframing of conventional points of view.
Stride stimulates a curious and engaged society that recognizes contemporary artists for their commitment to critical discourse, research, creative expression and their contributions to community and culture.
Stride Gallery requires visitors to wear a mask when visiting the gallery to keep staff and other visitors safe through the Covid-19 pandemic. If you have any questions, or would like to book a private visit, please reach out using any of the contacts below.
