The Chilkoot Trail Artist Residency is a creative journey through Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park, Alaska, and Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site, British Columbia. Each artist hikes the trail over a two week period, allowing time to work and savour the experience. The artists offer workshops at campgrounds and interact with hikers in creative ways. Watch for post-hike Artist Talks in Skagway and Whitehorse as well!
Parks Canada partners with the Yukon Arts Centre, U.S. National Park Service, Alaska Geographic, and the Skagway Arts Council to facilitate this unique program.
