We are pleased to announce that our N3 Arts Presenters Summit website is now live! 

This year's summit features professional development in areas such as:

  • Indigenous Curation (with France Trepanier)
  • Fundraising/Revenue Generation (with Jerry Yoshitomi)
  • Trends in the Development and Operation of Arts Facilities (with Duncan Webb)
  • Digital Innovation (with Inga Petri)

Friday afternoon is devoted to a Cultural Tourism workshop designed to provide input from the Cultural Sector directly into the Yukon Government’s Tourism Strategy.

As well, we are offering a Storytelling Workshop with Yukon Storyteller Sharon Shorty, and a multi-faceted Knowledge Café covering topics you identified as concerns and areas of interest from our pre-Summit survey.

There will be Northern artists showcasing each night as well as during the Summit .

And for your care and comfort, there will be a quiet break out room provided for one-on-one meetings; and for those who just need some quiet time, we are pleased to offer yoga sessions Friday and Saturday mornings to help get you grounded for the day.

We are also pleased to welcome International presenters from Alaska, Greenland and Norway as well as National delegates from BC, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Nova Scotia.

We encourage you to make this Summit your own –an array of workshops, networking opportunities and experiences that you can curate to meet your needs.

‘The Portrait Project’ by Golden Horn Elementary

‘The Portrait Project’ by Golden Horn Elementary

“The purpose of The Portrait Project was to practice the virtue of tact by creating several continuous contour line portraits of our classmates. Posing for a portrait and drawing the face of a classmate put each individual in a vulnerable position. While posing and drawing we developed a deeper understanding of how to practice the virtue of Tact. The portrait project contributed to community building.

'Tact is telling the truth kindly. Thinking before you speak. It is knowing what to say and what is better left unsaid. When you are tactful you don't tease or point out other people's differences to embarass them. You are carefull about others' feelings as you would like them to be with you.' (The Virtues Project)

The final product that you see is a portrait mobile created by members of the Golden Horn Elementary School Community.”
