Today my friend Katie and I went to walk around the Great Northern Arts Festival. Every summer performers, painters, carvers, jewelry makers and many other artists come to inuvik to showcase their talents. There’s a large gallery room where the finished pieces are on display. This stuff was really impressive! Boots, hats, carvings, jackets, paintings, jewelry, knives, everything! I looked like a total tourist walking through taking pictures of everything haha

It was a fun day at the festival, I have yet to check out any of the performances at night but I’ll definitely do that in the next few days. Here’s the link to the Great Northern Arts Festival’s website if you want to read any more about it. It’s a pretty cool gathering of people & cultures.
That’s all for now!!
