Arctic Missions Outreach Trust Fund has been active in the Eastern Arctic for almost 50 years. The organization has played an integral part in the transistion of the Inuit of Nunavik by, among other things, developing government, business and church leaders which in turn develops communities.


Our culturally sensitive Conference addresses some of the needs and concerns identified by Makavik, KRG, the Regional Health Board and researchers, as well as other issues relevant to all youth everywhere.


The Conference addresses root issues of substance (drug & alcohol) use and abuse thereby preventing & reducing crime & violence. It can be a valuable tool to help create healthier and safer Northern communities.


The conference consists of a 60 minute keynote presentation, six 90 to 120 minute interactive workshops and one 60-90 minute group Art Therapy session.


Respecting cultural distinctions these powerful conference topics are presented within the framework of traditional ways and provide a holistic approach addressing complex and underlying social and cultural issues that face Inuit youth. This holistic approach is sure to improve the mental, spiritual, emotional and physical well-being of your youth. It will also reduce self-harm and harm to others associated with negative choices and bring balance to their lives. Given the cultural value upon openness and honest sharing, healing and sharing circles may be used to bring well-being, healing and health.


The conference will assist these future leaders in overcoming their personal struggles and foster human development. It will help them to help themselves and to help others.

Art Therapy

Art therapy, sometimes called creative arts therapy or expressive arts therapy, encourages people to express and understand emotions through artistic expression and through the creative process.

Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses art materials, such as paints, chalk and markers. Art therapy combines traditional psychotherapeutic theories and techniques with an understanding of the psychological aspects of the creative process, especially the affective properties of the different art materials.

Art therapy involves the creation of art in order to increase awareness of self and others. This in turn may bring inner healing, promote personal development, increase coping skills, and enhance cognitive function. It is based on personality theories, human development, psychology, family systems, and art education.

One of the major differences between art therapy and other forms of communication is that most other forms of communication elicit the use of words or language as a means of communication. Often times, youth are incapable of expressing themselves within this limited range.

One of the beauties of art as therapy is the ability for a person to express his/her feelings through any form of art. Though there are other types of expressive therapies (such as the performing arts), expressive art therapy typically utilizes more traditional forms of art… such as painting, drawing, sculpture, or a variety of other types of visual art expression. We utilize drawing primarily.
