Pirurvik is an Inuit-owned centre of learning based in Nunavut’s capital, Iqaluit. We are dedicated to Inuit wellbeing through investing in our language and culture.
Like many creative ventures, Pirurvik began with a vision and a dream. The dream involved the establishment of a new kind of centre for Inuit – a holistic space where Inuit language, cultural expression and wellbeing would be fully integrated.
The dream began its implementation in 2004 to be:
a place of personal growth and development
creative, expressive and inspirational
about harmony, beauty, serenity
expansive in thought and operate at a high level
of soulful purpose, reflecting the best of our Inuit People.
Since 2004, we have been working steadily towards establishing a full-time, accredited and formally recognized centre of Inuktut higher learning.
