ITI has developed a new educational series to help NWT crafters and artists improve how they price and sell their artwork. 

The eight-part series, called “Selling your Artwork”, includes follow-along videos and workbook tutorials to guide artists through the process of developing a portfolio, pricing their artwork, selling artwork directly or through a gallery, and marketing themselves and their work.

NWT Arts will be running an online session of these workshops. From February 15 to March 15, 7:00 – 8:30pm, NWT artists can attend these online sessions. Each week, NWT Arts representatives will show a workshop (or 2) and then take Q&A’s from artists about the material. Workshops will be announced as a pre-registration process and will be run professionally with the ability for artists to submit questions in a confidential and anonymous setting to be answered in real time.

For those who would rather work through the materials in their own homes, at their own pace; or for those residents with limited internet access, the workshop series is also being distributed to NWT artists registered with the NWTArts Program by mail. Artists will receive a copy of the videos and workbook as well as USB sticks with the video material.

ITI’s Regional Economic Development Officers are also being trained to deliver the workshops in communities whenever possible.  

​The NWT Arts Program is a marketing initiative that promotes NWT artists creating traditional arts and fine crafts, contemporary arts and fine crafts, performing arts, literary arts, and film and media arts. Promoting opportunities for artists to market and sell their art reflects GNWT mandate commitments to Increase employment in small communities and Increase economic diversification by supporting growth in non-extractive sectors.
