Photo from Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario, Sudbury, during the creation of the exhibition Evicted from the Anthill by Z’otz* Collective. This exhibition was a partnership with Up Here Festival.

 

In November, Northeastern Ontario Tourism (NeONT) launched a survey inviting the region’s artisans throughout Northeastern Ontario to submit their business information. The goal of these efforts is to help showcase the talent and artisanship of local makers.

We at NeONT recognize the implications COVID-19 has had for entrepreneurs and makers. Please consider supporting small and artisanal businesses in the region.

Below, you will find artisans by Product Type; details on each can be found subjacent to this list. Please note, this list represents those who took the time to respond to the survey. Submissions are now closed. However, more opportunities to collaborate will be available in the near future.
