Are you getting ready to attend the in-person 2022 Arctic Arts Summit? If so, take a moment to review the following:

Attendance as a delegate at the in-person Arctic Art Summit will be by invitation only, with each country and nation responsible for selecting their official delegation. 

Participation as a presenter, artist or performer at the in-person Arctic Arts Summit is largely by invitation, selected by a programming work group made up of Arctic Arts Summit partners and curators, which includes local and circumpolar Indigenous peoples.

Note, however, that artists are invited to apply to participate in the 2022 Adäka Cultural Festival.

Some public events are being planned to take place around the in-person Summit. These will take place in Whitehorse, Yukon. More information will be shared soon.

While the Canada Council for the Arts and the Government of Yukon are the lead coordinators, many organizations and individuals are involved in making the 2022 Arctic Arts Summit a success.
