The Inuit Art Foundation seeks to empower and support Inuit artists' self-expression and self-determination, while increasing the public's access to and awareness of artists' work. To do so, the IAF advocates for and provides programming designed to increase the visibility of Inuit art, provide capacity-building services for Inuit and increase opportunities for Inuit in arts administration. This includes Inuit throughout Inuit Nunangat as well as urban Inuit throughout southern Canada.

Following its successful relaunch in 2012 after a temporary closure, the Inuit Art Foundation has undertaken to thoroughly and holistically evaluate its impact and recommit itself to centring Inuit at all levels of the organization—priorities enshrined in its current strategic plan. These efforts, across all levels of the organization from governance to staffing and across programs, have resulted in myriad successes ranging from better fulfillment of the IAF’s mandate of true Inuit leadership to better positioning to address community needs but also increased financial viability as well as long-term sustainability and growth.

In this panel, IAF staff and board members will discuss how these changes have been implemented over the past three years and the qualitative and quantitative results of these activities. Potential topics to include:

● Board recruitment and training;

● Leadership and staffing;

● Creating community-based advocacy positions;

● Editorial training and mentorship (Inuit Art Quarterly);

● The role of language in consultations and legal agreements (Igloo Tag Trademark);

● Accessibility and the archive (IAF and IAQ Archives);

● Foregrounding artistic autonomy and agency (IAQ Profiles);

● Assessment of past programs and outreach efforts (CITP Program)
