KIAC Culture Quest: an arts and cultural funding program (Yukon)
“Culture Quest supports the expression of culture and art for Yukon performing, visual, and literary artists. Culture Quest also supports First Nations cultural gatherings and festivals around the Yukon in addition to the preparation of work to be showcased nationally or internationally. The program was developed to address the opportunities of art and culture representation at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and subsequent events such as Canada Winter Games, Pan Am/Parapan Games and Northern Scene.
Culture Quest is an arts and cultural funding program supported by the Yukon Government (YG) and administered by the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture (KIAC). The fund is adjudicated by a Selection Committee.
Culture Quest supports:
- First Nations expression of art in relation to cultural practices.
- The continued growth and development of creation, performance, or presenting capacity in the cultural sector, particularly in underserved communities or sectors.
- Opportunities for artists to create projects that explore and develop ties between contemporary art and their cultural heritage or history.
- Yukon artists to prepare their work for the national or international stage.
