Inuit Artists
The Inuit Artists Project is designed to generate dialogue between artists from diverse cultural groups and communities, in the North, and in the rest of Canada. This "cross-cultural" exploration allows Inuit artists to participate within the creative community, on a National and International scale, and a new space has effectively been created in which their distinct, individual artistic expression can be explored. This digital collection was produced with financial assistance from Canada's Digital Collections Initiative, Industry Canada.

There are currently 1,513 images of work by 27 Inuit artists in the Canadian Art Database.
