Stories Within

When

June 6 - August 30

Where

YAC Main Gallery

Hours

Monday - Friday, 10am-5pm

Join us for the opening reception on June 6, 5-7pm.

Stories Within brings together Yukon First Nations artists to delve into the rich traditions of storytelling embedded within their practices. Each artist expresses narratives through diverse art forms, including beading, formline, collage, and fashion. Some narratives are deeply personal, while others address pressing issues such as climate change, exemplified by the devastating wildfires that swept through the North and Western Canada in 2023. Created by dynamic Indigenous voices from our Territory, these innovative and poignant works are deeply rooted in the tradition of storytelling.
