Join Alysha Strongman, curator of Puvirnituq Graphic Arts in the 1960s, for a special Art Matters talk and tour, followed by the Inuit Art Foundation’s Inuit Art Quarterly Profiles Edit-a-Thon in the Atrium. You are invited to contribute to this important online resource.  Bring your own laptop, or bring a friend and share resources. Wi-Fi is provided.

The Inuit Art Quarterly Profiles is the definitive online resource for artists, collectors, curators, gallerists and others to learn more about the diversity and talent of Inuit artists, working in all media. A free and publicly accessible platform, the IAQ Profiles features historical and contemporary artists from across Inuit Nunangat and southern Canada. Cataloguing artist exhibitions, publications, achievements and more, this unique resource is maintained by the Inuit Art Foundation but needs you to grow!

IAF staff will be available to assist artists in building their own profiles and provide tutorials to contributors interested in creating new entries or adding to existing artist profiles.
