The 2018 Chilkoot Trail Artist Residency welcomes three unique artists to the trail. Over the course of two weeks, each of these artists will hike the 53km / 33mi historic trail, and create work influenced by the culture, history, and the diverse ecology of the Chilkoot Trail.

Join us, to see and learn more about their work, hear stories from their hike, and how our cherished trail has impacted them.
