 Training opportunity for self-employed Yukon First Nation artists:

The Cultural Human Resources Council has developed an Aboriginal version of their successful course – “The Art of Managing Your Career”.

The goal is to send two Yukon representatives to the course taking place September 22-23, 2015 in Ottawa, Ontario.

A local committee is seeking proposals from Yukon First Nations artists or cultural workers and will select two individuals to take the training.

Application deadline: August 24, 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.
