The Jenni House Artist Residency provides artists with a studio in an historic log and timber frame building in Whitehorse, Yukon. The studio is located on the banks of the Yukon River in Shipyards Park just downstream of the Kwanlin Dun Culture Centre and is situated in the traditional territories of the Kwanlin Dun First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.

The Jenni House Artist Residency studio is wheelchair accessible and has wheelchair accessible washroom facilities. There is no internet at the Jenni House, but free public access to wifi is available nearby at the Whitehorse Public Library.

Operating since 2015, the Jenni House Artist Residency is organized by the umbrella arts organization, ArtsNet, and is supported by a collective of Yukon-based arts organizations including: Yukon Film Society, Jazz Yukon, Music Yukon, the Yukon Arts Centre and Kicksled Readings. These groups gratefully acknowledge the support received from Goverment of Yukon, Department of Tourism and Culture's Arts Fund, City of Whitehorse, and Culture Quest that make the Jenni House Artist Residency possible.
