The Ilisarniq Series is a series of workshops for Inuit artists, curators, writers, and art administrators to learn new skills and expand their practices, organized by the Inuit Art Foundation and Inuit Futures in Arts Leadership. Each online event provides Inuit artists with highly accessible tools, resources, and peer mentorship between Inuit artists to support learning about different parts of the arts landscape.

Recordings of some workshops are available on the IAF YouTube channel, while the others are available exclusively to Inuit artists through the Developing Qanuqtuurniq: Artist Portal (DQAP).
