Robby Hologak lives to go fishing. The Ulukhaktok resident says even when his body can't be outside, his mind is always focused on landing his next catch. "When I'm not working, I'll go fish," he said. "When I'm working, I'm thinking about fishing." Hologak has been managing the Ulukhaktok Arts Centre since 2012. He maintains the building and helps purchase art from local artists to sell at the centre.

Pursuit of Dreamers across NWT and Alberta
With his book Pursuit of Dreamers, Karl Johnston is taking his love of photography along with his curiosity on the road to ask strangers what they most desire out of life. "One-third of your time is spent dreaming and the other two-thirds is spent working towards those dreams," said Johnston. Planning to interview 50 people, so far Johnston has met about 15 from Lethbridge, Yellowknife, Calgary and Fort Smith.
