Qaggiavuut Society Inuit Performing Arts, Programming for Nunavut Children & Youth

The Qaggiavuut Society is strengthening and supporting Inuit performing artists and expanding Inuit performing arts programming to children and youth.

Qaggiavuut heard the resounding call for increased economic opportunities for established artists who are struggling to maintain, develop and promote their work. They also heard the need for Inuit performing arts programming for children and youth. There is no more powerful means to maintain culture and language than the performing arts.
