Since 2010, the National Arts Centre’s Music Alive Program in Nunavut has supported comprehensive programming that celebrates Inuit culture and cultivates local talent and local leadership. The program also provides special opportunities for Nunavut communities to engage with visiting artists, including artists from other parts of Nunavut and the Inuit Nunangat.
We continue to focus on important relationships with schools, arts organizations, community leaders, and others in order to develop programming that is tailored to the particular needs and culture of each community and to support local organizations in realizing their goals for arts education and community engagement.
Our youth have been really feeling down, because of homesickness, assignments piling up, and living as broke students. The [interactive concert] event [with Nunavut artists] really lifted the positivity here - it's palpable. Thanks so much for helping to make this happen. We appreciate your support...as usual!Nunavut Sivuniksavut, a post-secondary program for Inuit students in Ottawa
