Artist Opportunities

The NWT Arts Program continues to create new opportunities for artists to show and sell their work directly to consumers, as well as network with potential future clients, collaborators, and supporters. 

As opportunities are identified, the calls for artists will be posted on this page. These opportunities may include activities such as markets and cultural events, inside and outside the NWT. If artists can apply for funding to participate in the opportunity, it will be clearly noted in the call. The deadline for applications will also be noted in each call.
