Barbecue tonight, print launch on Sunday, don’t forget to grab a graphic tee

It’s round two for summer festivals in Iqaluit this week, with today’s start of the Nunavut Arts Festival, run annually by the Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association.

The festival, which will run from July 4 to July 9, opens tonight with a barbecue at Sylvia Grinnell Park Pavilion. Artists eat for free—and there are sure to be lots of artists.

Craft-makers from all three Nunavut regions are in Iqaluit this week for a schedule of events that will see skill development and networking along with artmaking.

Visiting artists will lead workshops open to the public that include mould-making and casting, sealskin upholstery, traditional pattern-making techniques, pixel art, 3D modelling, and leatherwork for bags and accessories.
