The world's first all-circumpolar, all-night festival of Inuit art happened in St. John's last week.

The iNuit Blanche festival took place over multiple sites in the downtown area and went late into the night, and featured throat singing, film, crafts, photography, group painting, carving, art bingo and Inuit tattoos and skin sewing.

The CBC's Mark Cumby and John Gaudi attended the event. If you couldn't make it out, here's a look at some of what they saw. 

INuit Blanche was a part of the national Inuit Studies Conference, which ran from Oct. 7-10 in St. John's.
