Call for nominations: Yukon Arts Advisory Council

Would you (or someone you know) like to be involved in funding decisions concerning the arts? Do you have the time to prepare for and attend five meetings a year? There are currently two vacancies on the Yukon Arts Advisory Council and we're collecting names for nominations.

The nomination deadline is October 23, 2015.

The Arts Section's mandate is to support and encourage the development of the visual, literary, and performing arts in Yukon. We accomplish this through programs which enhance public appreciation of the arts and which assist artists, arts organizations and collectives in the pursuit of their goals.
