National Film Board: NMAC to allow more effective collaboration

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

“I believe the Nunavut Media Arts Centre would allow our two organizations to collaborate more effectively on a range of cultural activities. …

“As I’ve traveled across the North over the years to meet with communities, I’ve witnessed firsthand the richness of Inuit history, culture and language—and the need for improved cultural infrastructure.

“The Nunavut Media Arts Centre project would bring the rich traditions of Inuit storytelling and creativity in the digital media age and help us to offer an under-served population a state-of-the-art, sustainable cultural asset, right in their community.

”I invite everyone to join us in supporting this project.”
