The Hamlet of Cape Dorset is currently fundraising for the creation of the Kenojuak Cultural Centre and Print Shop, a new cultural hub and art making space in the North. On March 30, 2014, the Inuit Art Foundation entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Hamlet of Cape Dorset, under which the Foundation agreed to receive charitable donations for the private sector capital campaign for the Kenojuak Cultural Centre and Print Shop. These funds were held in trust for the Hamlet, who will own and operate the building. These donations are restricted to the Centre and are not for the IAF’s use. In addition to supporting the overall capital campaign, donors may also support the Tim Pitsiulak Memorial Fund, which seeks to name a room in the new print studio after the late artist. For more information on the Kenojuak Cultural Centre and how you can contribute, please visit their website.
On November 15, 2017, the Hamlet of Cape Dorset assumed primary responsibility for the fundraising management of the Centre and as such, the IAF is no longer accepting donations on their behalf. This marks a key milestone in the Centre’s long-term sustainability and will help ensure the future success of the Centre.
