Fostering Relationships with Mentors: Juno Award Winning Artist Susan Aglukark Shares How Mentors Guided Her Towards Success. Episode #44



Susan is Nunavut’s first ever Juno Award winning Inuk singer/songwriter. She calls herself the accidental artist. Susan grew up in Arviat, Nunavut and with “no musical orthodoxy” to draw from, Susan’s early years were spent learning as she was headlining. Her early writing (The Arctic Rose-1992) was a series of songs drawn from the thing she had left, a life of uncertainty.
Susan has garnered 3 Juno awards, received The Order of Canada in 2005 and most recently was awarded the Governor General’s Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award (June-2016).

She has performed for HRH Queen Elizabeth, Jean Chrétien, Brian Mulroney, Nelson Mandela, Billy Graham and The Countess Of Wessex.

Susan is also the founder and chair of the Arctic Rose Foundation and is an Advisor on the Collateral Damage Project.
