Medicine Hat Cultural Check In

Posted on : Monday, April 06, 2020


#MedHat Cultural Check in! We have been searching for some local culture fixes while staying home or social distancing. Here are a few of our faves!



Medalta in the Historic Clay District is such an amazing cultural hub for our community. A few ways we are staying connected to them is by following them on social media, and combing through their website. Did you know they have an Online Collections Database! You can head to the website and look at many photos of the various items that Medalta created through the years.
Take a look and share your favourite piece on social media!

Their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.


Historic Walking Tour

Another way we are enjoying the outdoors, while practicing social distancing is heading downtown and looking at some of the amazing historic buildings. How many times have you walked or drove past these buildings without actually seeing them. Now is the perfect time to learn the stories of Medicine Hat’s past. Find the historic walking tour in our Experience Guide on page 22, or online here.


Esplanade Archives

The Esplanade is such an amazing resource for culture in Medicine Hat. Even though they are closed at this time we are finding ways to enjoy what they offer through their online resources. Did you know you can search the archives online? They have photos, maps, sound recording and so much more to discover online. They even have tips to help you with your search - so you can find all the info you need!


Public Art
Another way to enjoy some of Medicine Hat’s cultural attractions at this time is to view some Public Art. The City of Medicine Hat has a great Cultural Tour Map that shows locations, mentions the various artists and has a short description of the work. Check it out here.

Just a few ways to enjoy some of Medicine Hat’s cultural assets from the comfort of your home, or while walking past. Now go and explore - digitally, or outdoors! Share what you find, and if you have any other interesting ideas share those too!
