Together, the Yukon Arts Centre, Parks Canada and the US National Park Service are providing an opportunity for established visual artists to pursue their work amidst history and nature on the Chilkoot Trail. Artists will hike the entire trail during a two week backpacking trip, spending one to three days at each campsite. Each artist will be required to provide and carry all of their backpacking gear, food and art supplies for the journey (though food caches are available, provided artists arrange delivery in time for May flights). Bringing a support person, friend or family, is highly recommended. That person will help share the load and enhance safety while travelling, camping and working in bear country. Each of the artists chosen will travel during separate two-week periods. Artists will receive up to $100 USD support from Skagway Arts Council in purchasing necessary art supplies and will receive a $3000 CAD honorarium from the Yukon Arts Centre. The residency will occur over a two-week period between late June and early August.

This residency is open to applicants of any nationality for the 2020 edition. Artists applying for the 2020 residency are required to apply before the deadline of February 1st, 2019.

Le Centre des arts du Yukon, Parcs Canada et le Service des parcs nationaux des États-Unis donnent l’occasion à des artistes visuels établis de produire des œuvres artistiques en s’imprégnant de l’histoire et de la nature sur la piste Chilkoot. Les artistes parcourront toute la piste dans le cadre d’une excursion de deux semaines, et passeront de un à trois jours à chaque site de camping. Chaque artiste devra fournir et transporter tout l’équipement de randonnée, la nourriture et le matériel d’artiste dont il aura besoin (des caches de nourriture seront probablement disponibles dans la mesure où les artistes organisent la livraison à temps pour les vols de mai). Il est fortement recommandé d’être accompagné d’une personne (ami ou membre de la famille) qui l’aidera. Elle transportera une partie de la charge et la sécurité des artistes qui se déplaceront, camperont et travailleront au pays des ours s’en trouvera du fait même améliorée. Chacun des artistes choisis voyagera durant une période distincte de deux semaines. Les artistes recevront un soutien allant jusqu’à 100 $ du Conseil des arts de Skagway pour l’achat de matériel d’artiste, et recevront des honoraires de 3 000 $ canadiens du Centre des arts du Yukon.

L’édition de 2020 du programme d’artistes en résidence s’adresse aux artistes de toute nationalité. Les artistes désirant poser leur candidature pour l’édition de 2020 doivent le faire avant le 1er février 2019.
