Nunavut Arctic College presents "Aggakta Sanajangit"
September 2015 united students from various communities in Nunavut with a common dream; they each had a desire to learn Jewellery and Metalwork at Nunavut Arctic College in Iqaluit. Some were carvers wanting to add to their skills, some had tried jewellery in a workshop, some wanted a change, and all were excited to begin the two year diploma program. Students were taught metalworking skills; they were also taught Inuit Culture and Art History, Business, Drawing and Inuktut Language. This exhibition is a celebration of their achievement: stunning works in metal telling northern stories.
