This campaign seeks to build and equip the Kenojuak Cultural Centre and Print Shop, replacing an outdated group of small buildings and providing a safe and inviting space for the production of the priceless artwork of the Dorset Inuit. The new Centre will provide a superb physical infrastructure for the printmaking, drawings and stone carvings that have made the Cape Dorset artists famous around the world. And it will create a cultural hub for knowledge and cultural transfer.
The Kenojuak Cultural Centre and Print shop will be more than a physical structure of purpose and beauty. It will be the catalyst for the building of a strong foundation for a new generation of artists to create new works using different media and powerful, contemporary artistic vocabulary. It will be a place where the community of Cape Dorset can gather and be able to preserve and protect their rich cultural heritage. And it will be a place to showcase historical and contemporary Inuit art with visitors from around the world be they artists, scholars, eco-tourists or art aficionados.
Your contribution to this project will ensure that one of the most unique and treasured expressions of Canadian art will have a strong future.
The Inuit Art Foundation will accept and process donations and issue charitable tax receipts on behalf of the campaign. The Inuit Art Foundation is a registered charitable organization in Canada (#121033724 RR0001) and the United States (#980140282).
