Latest Issues

October/November 2018

In case the cover doesn't make it clear enough, this is our arts issue and we catch up with musicians and performers from across the North and ponder one big question: how is it that Nunavut still doesn't have a theatre?

But this double-issue isn't only about the arts. We put a spotlight on wildlife and check in with new technology that allows Nunavummiut to indulge in a class country food dish, without fear of bacteria contimating their meat. And we travel to remote Coats Island with its perfect conditions for research due to a lack of certain predators and permanent human settlements.
