Dedicated to visual and performing arts across Inuit Nunangat and beyond

Welcome to the recently revived Inuit Art Foundation!

After announcing its revival on December 5, 2012, the Inuit Art Foundation has been rejuvenating itself through a new President and Board of Directors, planning and consultation meetings, and new programming ideas. After 27 years of promoting Inuit artists, the IAF received a widespread appeal from artists, collectors, gallerists and arts and cultural organizations to continue its operations, including letters of support sent to the department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development. The clear need for a national organization dedicated to supporting the visual and performing arts from across Inuit Nunangat was the driving force to revive and improve its projects and initiatives, including the Inuit Art Quarterly magazine.

Since December, the IAF has been engaged in a transitional process, in which consultative meetings are playing an essential part towards the development of new programming. The process is being led by the dedicated team of volunteer Board of Directors.
