Yukon Government recognizes Community Arts that foster a broad level of participation and are a valuable source for personal and community development, education, and recreational enjoyment; Professional Arts that create and present artistic experiences for local and national audiences; and, Cultural Industries that have potential to create jobs for Yukoners and support the development of other economic sectors such as tourism, small business, manufacturing and education.
The department’s existing suite of funding programs also accommodates multicultural events in which the focus is on cultural heritage and traditions rather than arts development.
What funding programs are right for me?
- a cultural organization planning an event - New Canadians Event Fund
- in a non-profit society or collective with a community art project
