Makivik Corporation and the Native Friendship Centre of Montréal are exhibiting TAKU (to see), the work by Inuit youth carvers who visit the mikinak youth Coop of the Friendship Centre, this summer.

This unique partnership between Makivik and the Centre allow Inuit youth carvers to develop their skills, self-esteem and culture strength, and explore economic opportunities to market their art.

The art gallery is located at Galerie Carte Blanche, 1851 Amherst Street in Montréal, Quebec. The gallery will be open July 29 to August 5, 2015 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The official vernissage is July 30 at 6 p.m. The Festival Présence Autochtone Montréal, a major annual festival of Aboriginal peoples, will take place at the same time.

The Native Friendship Centre of Montréal is one of Makivik’s five partners in Montréal providing medical services and social programs to Inuit in need there.
