#Ataqatigiinneq means unity and in Greenland we need that right now, as many companies in Greenland are finding themselves in a very difficult time due to the influence of COVID-19.
Especially many of our colleagues within tourism are facing a summer season with a high lack of tourists and the consequences are devastating. Therefore, Vela Nordic and Inua Arctica made a collaboration to support our colleagues and we sincerely hope for your help!
Together, we developed a t-shirt and a tote bag, wherefrom the clothing came from the high sustainable brand Neutral, and the figure on our textiles are handmade by Josepha Lauth Thomsen from Inua Arctica, which symbolizes the Greenlandic culture in a very minimalized face of a Greenlandic mask dancer.
The purpose of our project was to contribute a sponsorship to smaller local companies in Greenland, who needed an ‘extra hand’ to survive and thrive within the business of tourism and culture.
In collaboration with Greenland Business we identified those most in need of the sponsorships, where missing incomes made it hard to get through 2020 or to start a new idea in 2021.
*the amount of the grant depended solely on revenue from the COVID-19 support sales of digital stamps, T-shirts and tote bags.
Thank you for the support you sent us!
