Call for Artists: 2018 Adäka Cultural Festival (Whitehorse)
“The Adäka Cultural Festival was launched in July 2011, with a mission to develop and deliver a world-class, iconic festival that showcases, celebrates, and fosters the development of Yukon’s diverse and distinctive First Nations arts and culture.
Adäka means “coming into the light” in the Southern Tutchone language. The Festival is committed to shining a light on the creative spirit of Yukon First Nations people, helping to preserve and revitalize our arts and culture, while inspiring artists and youth to take pride in their heritage and communities. With unique opportunities like Adäka our artists will undoubtedly continue to set new standards of quality and excellence in the arts and cultural sector!
The 2018 Artist Application deadlines have changed to help both the artists and the Adaka team get prepared earlier for another special year. For forms and more information, please visit adakafestival.ca
January 31, 2018 for those requiring sponsorship
