Distributing IAM: Four Partnerships, Sixty Northern Communities

It’s been a busy week for us here at IAM with the official launch of our first issue online and we have had amazing feedback so far. We are currently in the final stages of printing hard copies for those interested in purchasing or subscribing (you can contact us at magazine [at] miamuseum [dot] ca if you’re interested in either option).

One of the main goals of this magazine is to be accessible to northern communities. One way we have tackled this issue is through language: making the content available in Inuktitut, Inuinnaqtun, French and English means that significantly more people can read the magazine. Free digital distribution is another way we have tried to increase access.

However, we realize that digital distribution isn’t the only answer – the file is fairly large and the internet works at different speeds everywhere. So we have been keen to make sure that physical copies make their way to the North.

To that end, we are pleased to announce today that we have partnered with the Northwest Company’s Inuit Art Marketing Service and co-operative organizations Arctic Co-operatives Limited, La Fédération des coopératives du Nouveau-Québec, and the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative Limited to distribute hard copies of the magazine in sixty communities in the North. This means that artists, their families and community members in Nunatsiavut, Nunavik, Nunavut and the Inuvialuit Settlement Region will all have guaranteed access to the magazine.

We are so please to have the support of these organizations, who have had a long history of working with art made by Inuit, in bringing IAM to the North. Distribution is set to begin in January 2013 and we will update everyone with specific details as they happen.

In the meantime, make sure you get your free digital copy of Inuit Art Magazine Volume 1!
