Keno City Music and Art Workshop 2017
 
The Keno City Music and Art Workshop, in partnership with Yukon Women in Music and the Keno City Club, will be taking place from July 24 – Aug 5, 2017. Though the workshop is two weeks long, registrants can choose to participate in one or both weeks. All eight hired Artists in Residence (AiR) will be engaged in the workshop for the full two weeks. The purpose of the workshop is to serve the Artists in Residence and the Registrants (many of whom are also artists). It is an opportunity for professional artists to share their knowledge and get paid doing it. It is an opportunity for professional artists to have supported time to create new works in an inspiring place.

Greetings YWIM! 

The 2017 Keno City Music and Art Workshop for adults is now open for registrations. 
In partnership with Yukon Women in Music and Keno Club, eight professional Yukon artists will spend two weeks in Keno City creating new works as part of their Artist-in-Residency. All Artists in Residence (AiR) will be in Keno for both weeks.

These occasions will take place at historical venues in Keno City as well as at campfires.
