Welcome to the Yukon Arts Centre’s New Intern!

Welcome to  the Yukon Arts Centre’s New Intern!

Here at YAC, we're super excited to welcome Acasea to the team!

Acasea is a Whitehorse local, but is currently spending her time studying at the University of Victoria. She's a psychology major with an interest in pursuing art therapy. After attending SOVA, and loving the Yukon Arts Centre for many years, the intern position seemed like a perfect fit!

She's looking forward to working on Culture Days (September 31 - October 2, 2016) and Klondike Karaoke, a partnership with the Yukon Filipino Community (August 4, 11, and 25).

We're hoping she'll rock some ABBA at the event - a "Super Trooper" if we've ever seen one!

Welcome to the team Acasea, we can't wait to see all the great work you'll do.
