*Yukon-based artists interested in conducting their first curatorial project as a mentee are encouraged to apply.
Deadline for proposals: January 29, 2016.
The Yukon National Gathering is presented by the ACC/CCA on the traditional territory of the Kwanlin Dün and Ta’an Kwäch’än First Nations from September 28 to 30th, 2016. The event is hosted in partnership with First Nations communities and Yukon arts organizations. The 2016 Gathering provides an opportunity to build relationships between Indigenous artists and curators from Yukon and curators from across this land now known as Canada. The gathering will focus on sharing knowledge and showcasing Yukon’s Indigenous artists through collegial circles, facilitated discussions and arts exhibitions. The overall theme is inspired by the metaphor of a communal fire: something that warms and feeds us, a centering time in which we share, rest and listen.
The Yukon Arts Centre has reserved its 4200 sq.ft. class-A exhibition space for this curatorial opportunity. The selected curatorial team (mentor and mentee) will have access to the Yukon Permanent Art Collection, the Yukon Arts Centre Collection and may also work with the Aboriginal Art Collection managed by the Aboriginal Art Centre, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) in Gatineau, Quebec.
