Call for NWT Artists - Made in the NWT Art Boxes

The NWT Chamber of Commerce, with funding from Employment and Social Development Canada, is planning on marketing and selling 25 “Made in the NWT” Art Boxes (similar to the popular subscription boxes which have gained popularity across North America).

The NWT Chamber of Commerce is seeking NWT artists [KC1] who are interested in providing a total of 25 hand-made items. One item from each region will be assembled and distributed into a “Made in the NWT” Art Box, and mailed to art enthusiasts across Northern & Western Canada.

The NWT Chamber will be selecting one artist from each region of the NWT (Dehcho, Beaufort Delta, North Slave, Sahtu, and South Slave), to ensure representation across the territory.

Items that are easy to ship, unique, and handmade will have a greater chance at selection for the “Made in the NWT” Art Boxes. Please take this into consideration when submitting your proposal.

The deadline for Expression of Interest is Monday, January 31, 2022.

Items will need to be completed and delivered to the NWT Chamber of Commerce in Yellowknife by Tuesday March 1, 2022.

In order to be considered, please send an email, with the following information, to admin@nwtchamber.com :
