WELCOME TO THE VAULT CULTURAL COLLECTIVE!

The Mission of The Vault Cultural Collective is to provide our community with a central resource dedicated to the promotion and enhancement of historical and fine arts initiatives. The Vault is a collaborative initiated by several like-minded individuals who saw a need for artistic expression in Wheatland County and area. This team of like-minded community builders are creating a tourism and historical centre, an arts and cultural hub, and a micro business incubator in Strathmore, Alberta.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge Treaty 7 territory—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy: Kainai, Piikani and Siksika as well as the Tsuu T’ina Nation and Stoney Nakoda First Nation. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland.

We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today 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 or are visiting.

Arts on 817 - Denis Dufresne & Friends A Magical Evening!

It is almost impossible to describe the incredible community the audience shared through music. On April 30th Denis Dufresne & Friends premiered a new project called “Charms” to an adoring and enthusiatic crowd. It was a show celebrating hard work, craftsmanship, emotion and just….joy. The three performers experimented with new music, sing alongs, improvisation and a new mic that really captured the essence of raw acoustic music. It was a very special night for the Arts on 817 audience!
