The Yukon Arts Centre recognizes that many people in the territory’s communities are unable to travel to Whitehorse to experience our diverse programming. With the generous financial support of Northwestel, YAC is able to bring some of those shows to the communities through the Northwestel Hanging Sky Tour, giving all Yukoners a rich experience.

“We are pleased to partner with the Yukon Arts Centre for the Northwestel Hanging Sky Tour. As a proud and long-time supporter of northern arts and culture, we are excited to help bring this uniquely northern entertainment experience to Yukon communities.” – Curtis Shaw, President of Northwestel.
