Education and Assistance

The IAF has provided professional development training and financial assistance to Inuit artists and cultural workers in the North and South. The Foundation has also created a wealth of educational materials about Inuit art, health and safety practices and copyright legislation.


To increase the accessibility of Inuit art in both the North and South, the IAF has created online exhibitions showcasing works from across Canada.


The IAF has always provided opportunities for Inuit artists to participate in  skill-building workshops and residencies in a variety of disciplines.
