Alysa Procida

Executive Director, Inuit Art Foundation

Alysa Procida is Publisher of the award-winning Inuit Art Quarterly (IAQ), the only publication in the world dedicated to celebrating the arts and artists of the circumpolar world, and has transformed this legacy publication with 30+ years of history into one of Canada’s leading art magazines. Since joining the magazine in 2015, she has overseen the IAQ’s circulation expansion to the largest in its history. Under her leadership, the IAQ expanded to include two distinct online platforms in addition to the print title—the IAQ Online and the IAQ Profiles, as well as a suite of enewsletters. She also oversaw a full redesign of the IAQ in conjunction with the Inuit Art Foundation’s 30th anniversary in 2017 and the magazine’s first National Magazine Award in 2018. In 2019, she was shortlisted for Publisher Grand Prix at the National Magazine Awards. Alysa sits on the Board of Directors for Magazines Canada.
