What is it?
The NWT Arts Program promotes arts and fine crafts to local, national and international markets. Program registration is free to all NWT artists including those in traditional and contemporary visual arts and fine crafts, performing arts, literary arts and film/new media.
By registering for the NWT Arts Program, artists can connect with customers through unique branding and marketing opportunities on the NWT Arts website. The NWT Arts website educates customers about the different types of art made in the NWT and allows them to connect directly with artists, and will be re-designed in Fall 2013.
Among the Program’s objectives is to increase awareness and sales of authentic NWT art and increase demand for products in the marketplace. Branding is an important part of the program, and Fort Smith artist Chris Dewolf specially designed a recognizable program logo to identify and brand authentic NWT art.
The Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment has created guidelines for the use of the logo to ensure and protect the quality, point of origin and distinctiveness of the products it represents.
