In Nuvisi: Threading our Beads at Qatiktalik, curator Krista Ulujuk Zawadski explores how people, stories, artworks, cultural belongings and histories are threaded to one another, at Qatiktalik.

Nuvisi is grounded in Krista's PhD work at Carleton, and in her research with Elders, artists and scholars, in museum collections, through workshops, on the internet and in the community.

CUAG and Inuit Futures in Arts Leadership: The Pilimmaksarniq / Pijariuqsarniq Project invite you to join Krista, Miqqusaaq Bernadette Dean and Augatnaaq Eccles for a lively discussion on Inuit research methodologies.

Through centering of their lived experiences, connections to their communities and intergenerational knowledges, the panelists will discuss their navigations of and entanglements with academia and Euro-Western knowledge practices. They will share stories, memories and experiences with research and knowledge production practices from the archives to the seams.

We'll convene on Zoom. Everyone is welcome to this free event! Live captioning will be available.


Augatnaaq Eccles was born and raised in Kangiqliniq, Nunavut. She is an undergraduate student in History and English at Carleton University. She started sewing at 18, and now works with Martha Kyak. Sewing allows Augaqnaaq to connect with her culture and feel close to home, while also serving as a way to explore her creativity.

Miqqusaaq Bernadette Dean grew up in Coral Harbour on Southampton Island in northern Hudson Bay. She has been a cultural advisor for museum exhibitions and documentary films about Inuit and Arctic history. She produced and co-directed Inuit Piqutingit (What belongs to Inuit) with Inuk filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk.

Krista Ulujuk Zawadski is from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. She has an MA in Anthropology from UBC and has focused her education and career on Arctic anthropology and archaeology, museology and collections-based research, with emphasis on fostering accessibility to collections for Inuit. She is a PhD candidate at Carleton University.
