Benefits

The Kenojuak Cultural Centre and Print Shop will:

  • Encourage intergenerational cultural transfer as Elders share stories and legends, traditional ways, and the intricacies of carving and drawing techniques for which they are famous
  • Attract and nurture a new, vibrant generation of younger artists, using different media and powerful, contemporary artistic vocabulary
  • Enhance the experience for tourists as as they experience the drawing and printmaking processes in real time, and have the opportunity to buy or order art directly on site
  • Fuel the growth of businesses that serve the tourist industry, and provide job opportunities for community members of all ages
  • Be a focal point for the sharing of diverse cultures as visitors and Inuit learn about each other
