1) The Milukshuk Centre - 2,000 sq ft.
Designed as the region's first state-of-the-art multi-purpose venue, this building (the Milukshuk Centre) got totally gutted to make way for new walls, floors and floor beams, electrical, heating and a new roof too. It's one of the few private buildings in Nunavut to have an emergency back-up power system. There are 2 types of programmable LED theatrical lights covering 10 zones in the main hall - the northern lights sequence is amazing. The lights in the stage area interact with sound or may be set to simply light the carving wall. Walls, floors and attic were all fully insulated. The Centre is wheelchair accessible.
We joke to say it's a high-end technical shack; but, it's beautiful and functional with amazing views of the Coronation Gulf (Arctic Ocean), designed by Copper Inuit youth, elders and engaged average people wanting to make the most of the opportunity to create something themselves and for their 'community.' This cultural building offers the buyer a unique history and an unparalled sense of creative vision.
The Milukshuk Centre is named after the late Fred Elias . KRS bought this handyman special as surplus property from the Kitikmeot Inuit Association (KIA). Fred, the Executive Director of KIA at the time, believed in KRS' vision, work ethic and commitment, as he did of all aspiring Inuit . Naming the building after Fred also recognizes our cultural roots with Alaska and the Inuvialuit region of the Northwest Territories. KRS thankfully received permission to honour Fred's legacy and this spectacular multi-purpose venue from the Elias family. The building has been formally blessed twice - initially when Inuit youth, artists and workers were neck-deep in the renovations; and finally when their efforts were complete.

Faces of Kugluktuk as Arctic Cotton blowing in the wind -
A massive 35'x8' murale by world renowned artist, the late John Allukpik and Canadian artist Chantal Dupas. This is one of the largest indoor oil paintings in Nunavut, if not the largest detailed art piece. The painting is the largest commission that John did before his passing.
John and Chantal were so technically capable they designed the painting to interact and change with the special effects of LED lights. This painting is a true one of a kind.
Read more here about the life of John Allukpik and his artistic vision, a vision of hope for Inuit, the Kitikmeot region and Nunavut.
You may also read more on how important it was for John to mentor other Canadian artists to carry on his style and knowledge on page 6 here
