Edmonton Skyline

Photo by the City of Edmonton

“Edmonton is a vibrant urban centre in the heart of wilderness – the largest northernmost metropolis in fact. Despite our big city feel, there’s a uniqueness to how we do things. Edmonton is a city that is authentic, rugged and original. It’s an attitude that you’ll only appreciate once you’ve visited Edmonton”. – Explore Edmonton

SCMA’s In-Residence Week is jam packed, but we’ll try to ensure everyone will have an opportunity to explore Edmonton, with free time being available at least one evening and for a short period of time on Thursday.

You may consider arriving early or staying for the following weekend. While in Edmonton, be sure to sample some of the cuisine that makes it a culinary centre, take in some shopping at the largest shopping mall in North America, and experience the artistic and cultural aspects of the city at one of its many galleries, museums or theatres.

MacEwan University, City Centre Campus is conveniently located near downtown Edmonton. Familiarize yourself with this Robins Health Learning Centre MacEwan University Map.
