In case the cover doesn't make it clear enough, this is our arts issue and we catch up with musicians and performers from across the North and ponder one big question: how is it that Nunavut still doesn't have a theatre?

But this double-issue isn't only about the arts. We put a spotlight on wildlife and check in with new technology that allows Nunavummiut to indulge in a class country food dish, without fear of bacteria contaminating their meat. And we travel to remote Coats Island with its perfect conditions for research due to a lack of certain predators and permanent human settlements.
