Welcome to My Survey

If you are an artist who would like to be advised of opportunities such as artist markets; teaching/learning classes including Master/Apprentice teams; 1% for art/Public art notices; grants and funding opportunities and more, please complete the Sealaska Heritage Institute’s Northwest Coast Artist Database registration form below. This database is for SHI programmatic use and is not intended to be posted on any public forum.

If you have already been involved with our programs, we still encourage you to fill out this form, as there may be gaps in our information about you.
If you are new to our programs, we would love to learn about you and reach you when opportunities arise.
If you are a non-Native who is proficient Northwest Coast Arts, please also register, and note that you are non-Native.
