Arts, Crafts & Film

Arts and crafts remain a small, but important piece of the economy of the Northwest Territories. In addition to bringing important employment opportunities, arts and crafts are important cultural exports for the Northwest Territories; they tell our stories around the country and the world.

Film is another burgeoning field identified as having high growth potential and many direct and indirect economic benefits. Film and media productions employ many people per dollar invested while also contributing further cultural exports for the Northwest Territories.

Industry, Tourism and Investment plays an active role in promoting and supporting the arts in partnership with NWT Arts, the NWT Film Commission, and community organizations.
