KIAC is the reason I live in Dawson. Through Arts Fest in 2016, I exhibited work and put on a weekend-long performance, meeting dozens of community members who would soon become friends. That weekend introduced me to so many other like-minded people doing wonderful things in this small town. I couldn’t leave. Now, my calendar is dotted with exhibits, music, artist talks, lectures, and events that make this small town so special. And KIAC is the nucleus.

As a parent, performer, and community member I could not thrive in Dawson City. KIAC connects Dawson City to the rest of the world. They bring the world to us through the ODD gallery and the exponential amount of events and presentations they host. KIAC is integral in helping humans gain new perspectives of the world we live in. They promote creativity and personal expression by offering arts education and by supporting the development of professional and non professional arts alike. From a performing arts stand point, KIAC continues to offer a space for performances and rehearsals at accessible prices. They are flawless in their assistance with production development.

As a parent, my kids have been exposed to the world of film, performing arts and visual arts. They have been fortunate enough in a town of 1800 at the end of a subarctic road to take dance, painting, music classes. They could learn how to make films and silkscreen, carve, use a darkroom and more. KIAC invests in and supports our youth . With skills and knowledge come confidence, passion for life, and a feeling of self-worth. We would not live in Dawson City without KIAC. Congratulations on a 20 year labour of love. I look forward to being a part of 20 more.

KIAC makes the winters shorter and summers filled to the brim. It is hard to remember life before KIAC.

Awesome, welcoming, contemporary art space that contributes so much to the community and shows visitors the true culture of Dawson. Pop in to one of their events!

The ODD Gallery is in the same building as KIAC – the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture, and is affiliated with KIAC. This small space has interesting, well-curated exhibits, from artists both within and outside the Yukon. It’s free to get in and has brochures and information about other art events in Dawson. A good place for an art lover to visit.
