Industry, Tourism, and Investment Staff in the North Slave work tirelessly to support the Artists and Artisans within the region and beyond.
In March 2014 ITI Headquarters helped launch the new NWT Arts Program. With this new program, Artists and Organizations can sign onto the website to update their profiles, add photos and/or audio files to their portfolios, add events and announcements, and join discussion forums. Artists registered with the program can pick up NWT ARTS stickers, tags, and other point of sale material from their local ITI offices.
The Content Collection Project aims to collect the stories and images of willing Artists throughout the Territory. The Artist may use the images for their own marketing projects, and be involved in marketing project through the NWT ARTS Program.

ITI is proud to help fund workshops and training sessions across the Territory that help support Artists as they make, market, and sell their Arts and Fine Crafts.
ITI Regional North Slave staff continue to support individual Artists and micro-businesses through Support for Entrepreneur and Economic Development (SEED) Policy. They also helped to support popular events such as: Snowking, Long John Jamboree, Canadian Dog Derby, Yellowknife Annual Trade Show, Folk on the Rocks, and Old Town Ramble and Ride, among others.
