Art is alive on the Chilkoot Trail
Together, the Yukon Arts Centre, Parks Canada, the Skagway Arts Council, and the US National Park Service provide opportunities for established visual artists to pursue their work inspired by history and nature on the Chilkoot Trail. Artists hike the entire trail during a two week backpacking trip, spending one to three days at each campsite. They interact with hikers, create art, and share their experience.
How to apply to be a Chilkoot Trail Artist in Residence?
Starting with the 2018 season, one regional artist (Yukon/Alaska) and two artists from anywhere in the world will join the program. Applications for 2021 are due February 1, 2020. Applications are available on the Yukon Arts Centre website.
