Aumaaggiivik Nunavik Arts Secretariat

Aumaaggiivik, the Nunavik Arts Secretariat

In 2009, Avataq inaugurated a new department called the Aumaaggiivik Nunavik Arts Secretariat. Established with contributions from the Kativik Regional Government (KRG), the Kativik Local Development Centre (KLDC), Makivik Corporation, and Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the goal of the Aumaaggiivik is to improve artistic practice in Nunavik and foster sustainable economic development and employment in the arts and culture industries.

Taking its Inuktitut name from a word which means "the place where sparks are sourced" Aumaaggiivik will support artists in all domains (visual art, performance, music, film and video, literature, storytelling, etc) by "sparking" their careers through grant programs, training and professional development, artist residencies, investment in local infrastructures to provide work spaces for artists, and promoting the arts both within and outside the region.

Please contact us for any question or comment: 514-989-9031, ext. 291 (toll free 1-800-361-5029) or e-mail aumaaggiivik@avataq.qc.ca
