The NWT Arts Program is a marketing initiative that represents all artists of the Northwest Territories (NWT), including traditional arts and fine crafts, contemporary arts and fine crafts, performing arts, literary arts, and film and media arts. Administered by the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment, Government of the Northwest Territories, the Program helps connect you with registered artists and the story of their art.
In stores and galleries, the NWT Arts logo identifies authentic NWT arts and fine crafts created by a registered artist of the NWT Arts Program. When shopping for an authentic piece of artwork, be sure to look for the NWT Arts logo. This mark of authenticity ensures your purchase was handmade made by a registered artist of the NWT Arts Program and helps support this sustainable, local industry.
Whether you are looking for a traditional fine craft made of raw materials from the land, a contemporary work of art that captures the northern spirit of the artist, or a song, film or book inspired by life in the North, each piece of art made in the NWT a story to share with you.
Join the NWT Arts Program

Content Collection Project
One of the many benefits of the NWT Arts Program is the Content Collection Project. This ongoing project is an opportunity for registered artists to have content collected about them and their artwork. In this case content means photographs and a video or audio interview.
