Inuit Artist Database Edit-A-Thon at OCADU

Submitted on Tuesday, October 31, 2017

 

The Inuit Art Foundation (IAF) in partnership with OCAD University will be hosting an Edit-A-Thon to build upon the IAF’s Inuit Artist Database program: https://iad.inuitartfoundation.org/home.

iSchool students are invited to attend the event and contribute to the Inuit Artist Database. No prior knowledge of Inuit artists and art is necessary, as resources on key artists will be available on site. The objective of the database is to serve as a professional platform for Inuit artists and to develop as a comprehensive and collaborative public resource on the work of Inuit artists.

Date: Thursday, November 16, 2017
Time:
12-4pm
Location:
OCAD University’s Onsite Gallery, 199 Richmond Street West, Toronto, ON
