Nunatsiaq News: Nunavut arts foundation gets renewed support to digitize art works. “The Kinngait Arts Foundation says it’s received a new financial boost to continue its work digitizing pieces from the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative’s permanent collection. The Kinngait-based studio is home to more than 155,000 paper and sculpture works by Inuit artists, housed in three different locations. The Department of Canadian Heritage’s Museum Assistance Program is providing another $50,000 to the Cape Dorset Legacy Project: Digital History Initiative—funding that will largely go to the human resources needed to help the digital documentation of two- and three-dimensional pieces.”
