The Yukon Arts Foundation is a charitable organization founded in 2001 to work with individual and community partners to raise funds for state-of-the-art equipment and innovative arts and cultural programming.
Directed by a dedicated and diverse volunteer Board of Directors, the Foundation’s goal is to enrich the lives of all Yukoners through investment in our territory’s performing and visual arts.
About YUKON ARTS FOUNDATION
Sound Bites is a brand new fundraising campaign to replace the Yukon Arts Centre theatre’s antiquated sound system.
Although the existing sound system has served the theatre well over the past two decades, new technologies and YAC’s ongoing commitment to its enthusiastic audiences and talented user groups necessitates this vital upgrade.
Each year 30,000 people of all ages (including some who come more than once) attend about 170 music, dance, film, theatre, multi-media, spoken word, festivals and other performing arts and cultural events at the Yukon Arts Centre, presented by 40 Yukon and Whitehorse arts organizations.
Foundation volunteers have a goal to work with you – our valued community partners – to raise $90,000 towards the purchase of new state-of-the-art audio equipment. We look forward to reaching this milestone and celebrating the sweet sounds of success with you!
