Dawson City Arts Society (DCAS) is a community organization created in 1998 to enrich the quality of life in the Yukon through the enhancement of arts, culture and the economy. DCAS is a governing partner in the Yukon School and Visual Arts (alongside Yukon University and Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in) and the Klondike Development Organization. Its operating arm is the Klondike Institute of Arts and Culture.

Registering for the AGM will allow us to plan accordingly, send out reminders with links, meeting packages and annual reports. (Help us save paper!)

You do NOT have to register to attend, but you DO have to be nominated to the board of directors at least 7 days prior.

By attending the Annual General Meeting, you will hear from KIAC directors and staff about DCAS’ activities, review financial statements, and elect the 2022-23 Board of Directors.

NOTE: There WILL NOT be Residency and Gallery Selections Committee elected at this AGM. We are restructuring our committees to better coincide with our operations. If you are interested in participating in one of our committees, register, then please read on!


We will send you AGM reminders, video call links, and the members package, including financial statements and the annual report.
This will allow us to set up the hybrid meeting adequately.
