The Arts and Cultural Industries sector of Nunavut, Canada is one of the territory’s most important economic contributors, it creates more than 1000 full time jobs and more than 3000 people earn some income annually from arts sales. Combined, this is more than 10% pf Nunavut’s population. This makes Nunavut a unique example in the Arctic, and this session will address some challenges, but also strategize about opportunities of further development of arts and cultural industries in Nunavut.
