Yukon museums, interpretive centres and First Nations cultural centres perform a vital service in preserving our cultural artifacts, traditions and natural history. Yukon Government values the contributions of these organizations and works in partnership with them to set planning priorities, provide resources to empower them, and support the successful development and operation of these institutions.
Welcome to Whitehorse!
During the last week of May, museum professionals will descend upon Whitehorse to attend the Canadian Museums Association 66th National Conference. With “Cultural Collaborations” as its theme, this year’s conference aims to provide delegates with a forum for discussion on the topic of cultural collaboration; an opportunity to participate in workshops to enhance professional development and the chance to create new collaborations.
With over 225 delegates in attendance, including over 50 from Yukon, the conference, its workshops and study tours will provide a multitude of rewarding experiences for all involved. Conference highlights include a showcase of Yukon performers to be held at the Yukon Arts Centre and study tours to Haines Junction, Carcross and Lake Bennett via the White Pass and Yukon Route Railway, Teslin and Dawson City. All of this plus 18 hours of daylight (and counting) will ensure a memorable adventure for all.
