Things are shaping up for another fantastic installment of The (s)hiver Winter Arts Festival. We have a host of excellent contributors this year that are sure to make for another awesome celebration of art and light here in frosty Dawson City. We are looking forward to seeing all you lovely people out in the chilly streets! This year promises a vast array of performances and installations to keep you moving through town. Come out and roam with us! There will be live music, theatre performance, aerial acrobatics, a lantern parade, gallery shows, and a ghost ship bon fire on the river to keep your wintery spirits alight… See you all on Jan 30th and 31st for the second annual (s)hiver Winter Arts Festival!!!!
A very big thank you to all the people who came out to make this event a huge success!! We had an awesome time and raised a bunch off money, $1,417.78 to be exact. All the money will be used to fund the (s)hiver Winter Arts Festival with the majority of the proceeds going directly to contributing artists. Thanks again!!!!!
On Friday December 11th @ the YOOP Hall, we will be hosting a Drag show / dance. That’s right, we know you want to. We encourage all who wish to dress up to do so! If you have a song you would like to lip-sync to, please let us know in advance so we can line up your song.
We are currently gearing up for the second annual edition of The (s)hiver Winter Arts Festival for January 30-31st, 2016. We are excited to once again bring a celebration of arts to the streets of Dawson City. Last year’s event was a huge success, showcasing art from more than 30 participants. This years festival will be expanded to include workshops and will take place over the course of two days instead of just one night.
We are now taking submissions from artists of all disciplines. If you have works to contribute, project ideas, are interested in hosting a workshop, or are available to volunteer, let us know!
We are excited to present (s)hiver for you all this Saturday. It will be a free for all art extravaganza with live performances and art installations throughout Dawson. We will be posting a finalized schedule of performances and a map of all locations really soon… stay tuned.
Things are shaping up for the event. We are very excited about the submissions we have received. There are many awesome things in store from over 20 different artists. Music, Dance, Painting, Sculpture, Circus Acts, Light Installations, etc…
