An Evening of Adventures in Inuit Art

Proudly presented by Adventure Canada and the Inuit Art Foundation

Join Alysa Procida, Executive Director of the Inuit Art Foundation for a contemporary presentation on the important role and relationship that varying art forms have in Inuit culture and how this stunning art form is received to Southern audiences.

Over the past several years, the professionalization and marketing of Inuit art has changed substantially. For the past thirty years, the Inuit Art Foundation has advocated for and supported the success of Inuit artists working in all media. In this talk, the IAF’s Executive Director will broadly introduce the history of Inuit art and the role of the Inuit Art Foundation in the development of this ever-growing field.

Bringing a wealth of experience with Inuit art and non-profit leadership, Alysa Procida joined the IAF in 2015. Prior to becoming the IAF’s Executive Director, Procida was the Executive Director and Curator of the Museum of Inuit Art. Over her career, she has written and presented internationally about using both traditional and new media channels to champion Inuit art to new and existing audiences.

As The Explorers Club's exclusive provider for Polar Travel, Adventure Canada is delighted to introduce Club members and art appreciators alike to the fascinating world of Inuit Art. Throughout Adventure Canada’s Arctic expeditions explorers have the opportunity to call in at Inuit hamlets, meet artists, learn about their work and support this highly coveted art form. The not for profit Inuit Art Foundation works to support and promote Inuit artists, both well-known and up and coming. Adventure Canada and the Inuit Art Foundation work together to facilitate meaningful experiences for explorers and artists alike.
