Nattilik Heritage Centre

Working with community members including Elders, youth, artists and other locals, DJA developed the design concept, storyline and exhibit structures for this centre. Art, sculpture and quotes from people from the region are highlighted in this exhibit. The centre is designed as a showplace and storytelling centre in the summer and a meeting place and ‘House of Learning’ during the winter. The modular exhibits are designed to quickly adapt to these changing needs, cases and graphic walls can be cleared away for performances and large gatherings.
