This project is produced by Embassy of Imagination in partnership with the Hamlet of Cape Dorset, and with the support of the Cape Dorset Recreation Department. 

On the outside of Kinngait's Community Hall are drawings done by Kinngait youth. The drawings are inspired by experiences on the land, country food and the local story of Tittalittaq. To create the mural, Embassy of Imagination led mural and drawing workshops for youth this past winter and this summer. To inspire the mural there were boating and land trips this summer led by Ettula Adla, Luutaaq Qaumagiaq, David Tapaungai, 
Joseph Pinguartuk and Elder Kov Tapaungai, and storytelling by Elders Atsiaq Alasuaq and Etulu Etidloie.
