INUIT ART FOUNDATION
Established in 1987, the Inuit Art Foundation provides support to Canada’s Inuit arts communities and is the sole national body mandated to promote Inuit artists and art within Canada and internationally. The Foundation is deeply invested in the rich history and tradition of Canada’s Inuit artistic expressions, while actively contributing to the growth and development of these unique and diverse contemporary art practices. The Foundation undertakes advocacy on behalf of Inuit artists and realizes a number of strategies aimed at enhancing the appreciation and interpretation of Inuit art. One of the most significant contributions of the Foundation is the publication of the Inuit Art Quarterly, now in its thirtieth year of publication. The Inuit Art Foundation is governed by a volunteer, Inuit artist majority Board of Directors and is supported by the private sector along with contributions from Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada.
