30 Jan

As promised, the installment of of Skype Conversations series is Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, the Executive Director of Qaggiavuut! Society for a Nunavut Performing Arts Centre! If you’re not familiar, Qaggiavuut! promotes performing artists in Nunavut – from filmmakers to drum dancers and beyond – while raising funds to build Nunavut’s first performing arts centre. Laakkuluk is also a performer: you can read more about her work here.

There’s lots to talk about and we want your input! Do you want to know what kinds of performing artists are a part of Qaggiavuut? Anything about the history of performing arts in the Arctic? Want to know why they’re interested in a Performing Arts Centre? Laakkuluk and I will be speaking this Thursday at 2 PM (EST) so leave your questions in the comments and I will be sure to ask. Then check back for the video, which should be posted late that afternoon!
