About this Event

The Yukon First Nations Culture and Tourism Association (YFNCT) is hosting the 2nd Bead, Hide & Fur Symposium on March 6-8 at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. This 2 ½ day symposium and workshop is for Indigenous fine craft artists who work with beads, hide, fur and other natural materials such as quills and fish scales.

The Bead, Hide & Fur Symposium will explore a variety of topics, share information and ideas, identify challenges and opportunities within the sector and determine ways to continue building a vibrant and viable Indigenous craft industry for Yukon.

The Symposium program will include a mix of group discussions, hands on exercises, sharing of knowledge, materials, skills and suppliers. There will also be an option of participating in a hands-on arts workshop on Friday, March 6th from 1-5PM. Workshops TBA.

The two days of discussion will be in a sewing circle format, with facilitated discussions and learning opportunities throughout. Artists are encouraged to work on their pieces during the symposium.
