One of Canada's most famous remote communities has been the inspiration for thousands of visitors who come to Churchill each year to see polar bears, beluga whales, over 200 species of birds, the historical Fort Prince of Wales, and one of the most diverse and delicate ecosystems on earth.
As an isolated community with air or rail being the only means of transportation to the south, the long and grueling 9 month winters limit options for extracurricular activities. The culture and history of this remote community is a vibrant representation of the history and diversity in the heart and soul of our country. While welcoming the world to their doorstep, Churchill retains the fortitude and strength of its culture and community, which gives the children of the north a unique perspective. The community and the school are enthusiastic participants in the Kid's Arctic Art Incentive program. Showing support and giving these kids the opportunity to experience and take initiatives in the arts, enriches both the student and the community.
This is the reason Kid's Arctic Art Incentive Inc. was created.
Special thanks to the businesses and community members who volunteered or sponsored our program.
Kind and creative regards,
Founder of Kid's Arctic Art Incentive Inc.
