Join in 2022 to celebrate the annual Adäka Cultural Festival! Taking place right after the Arctic Arts Summit in Whitehorse, Yukon, Adäka will continue to create opportunities for artists across the northern circumpolar world. We will celebrate Canadian northern region communities that both express uniqueness and share commonalities in their art, language, landscape, environment, history and culture.

All Indigenous visual artists, fashion designers, performers and knowledge keepers from all nations across Yukon and the North are invited to submit an application to attend and participate.
We look forward to coming into the light together in a safe and respectful way.

  • Festival dates: June 30 to July 7, 2022
  • Festival location: Whitehorse, Yukon
  • Festival venue: Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre
  • Deadline to apply:
    Out of territory residents: December 15, 2021

We recognize the importance of artists’ participation without facing financial repercussions. If needed, please indicate on your application that you are seeking sponsorship to attend.
