Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory
"As an Inuk artist, I am an advocate for the deep human need for all people, but especially post-colonial indigenous people to express themselves at a level of creative excellence."
I am a multidimensional writer with seasoned experience in academia, journalism, prose, and performance. I am also a performing artist renowned in the circumpolar world for my vivid work, collaborative nature and professional standards. My performance work has focused on uaajeerneq (Greenlandic mask dancing), storytelling and poetry. I am a cultured and educated Beneficiary of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement who speaks Greenlandic, Inuktitut, French and English. I have a strong academic background in Political Science and Cultural Psychiatry. At my roots, I am an active community member devoted to advancing plurality, gender equality and enriching cultural and artistic experiences for people of all ages. I am a mother of three wonderful children.
