Significant consideration was given to the design of the exhibition to ensure that it would be as accessible to as many people as possible – especially Inuit Survivors and community members. Every effort has been made to minimize space, installation and shipping requirements. As a result, the “We were so far away…” exhibition can be transported to remote communities, and can be adapted to fit both small and large settings such as community centres, libraries, and schools. The exhibition was designed so that it can be set up in a variety of spaces – it is portable and lightweight and can be installed quickly.

Borrowers will be required to sign a loan agreement that details the roles and responsibilities (security, insurance, shipping, etc.) of both the host and LHF. There are no loan fees for the We Were So Far Away exhibition.

Typically, borrowers expenses include insurance of the works while installed and in transit, hosting an exhibition opening (interpretation, etc.), as well as local advertising and promotion.
