YAAC meets to adjudicate applications from three funding programs:
The members are selected so as to achieve, so far as is reasonably practicable, effective representation of several arts disciplines, representation of several Yukon communities, and representation of the distinct interests of First Nation artists.
Members of the YAAC are appointed by the Minister and serve 3-year terms. Members can be re-appointed for successive terms.
Left-to-right: Bill Barnie, Julie Thorpe, Boyd Benjamin, Heidi Hehn, Annie Avery (Chair), Sandra Storey, Gail Calder, Derek Cooke, Corrie Gallienne (staff).
