6. N3Y - Yukon Arts Presenting Summit

We are pleased to invite you to a gathering of individuals whose work is primarily in the cultural sectors – performing arts, visual arts, heritage and culture. The Yukon Arts Centre has received legacy funding from Arctic Winter Games to support this initiative. This gathering will provide opportunities for Yukon’s cultural administrators to come together, to learn; to engage in meaningful dialogue and to be inspired.

N3, the idea of a cross-territorial performing and visual arts network has a place at the national table and is already recognized at the CAPACOA (Canadian Arts Presenting Organization) National Network Meetings and has the moral support of Heritage Canada.

There was a meeting of all stakeholders from each of the three northern regions in Yellowknife in March 2010. It was decided at that meeting, that work would continue to strengthen each regions’ presenting capacity and then eventually move toward a larger tri-territorial organization presently called N3.
Since that time, the Yukon Arts Centre, KIAC and many other groups have been working on developing Yukon’s overall presenting capacity, work we have called N3Y.
After considering the progress to date, we believe that now is the time for a gathering of interested stakeholders. The next steps will be determined at the Summit, but we hope there is concrete interest in creating a network of communities to work together for the benefit of all Yukoners in the areas of arts, culture and heritage.

N3Y - Yukon Arts Presenting Summit will be held November 20th – 23rd in Whitehorse. Thanks to the generous Arctic Winter Games legacy funding we will be able to cover the costs of one person from each community to attend the Summit.

To encourage as many other people as possible to attend we will endeavour to keep the conference registration fee reasonable.
