Nunavut Arts & Crafts Association

Since its foundation in 1998, the Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association (NACA) has worked to benefit Nunavut artists.
NACA is a non-profit incorporated society that supports and promotes the development and growth of Nunavut's arts and
crafts community through advocacy, communications, artist development, education and marketing.

We are in the midst of redesigning our website to improve usability for our visitors. In the meantime, to learn more about the art
and artists of Nunavut, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or sign up for our e-mail newsletter below!

Safety Courses for Artists

The Workers' Compensation Board provides a free course to artists called "Safety Awareness for
Artists and Carvers." It covers:

Tool safety and more

Artists that have completed the course can train others in their own community. The Workers' Compensation Board urges artists to establish training programs in their communities. Since many quarries in Nunavut are not owned by any one person or company, there is often no one responsible for making sure that the Mine Health and Safety Act is followed. We need your help to keep artists educated about safe practices and their rights.
