Shifting Ground: Mapping Energy, Community, and Geography in the North is a four-year SSHRC-supported interdisciplinary artistic project which emerges from the necessity to create new aesthetic expressions that reflect the landscapes, lived experiences, and future imaginaries of anthropogenic climate change in more inclusive terms.

We are delighted to be in the planning stages of the inaugural Shifting Ground convening, with the goal of coming together in the Yukon following the 2022 Arctic Arts Summit. The Yukon convening will primarily unfold in Dawson City and Whitehorse, along with visits to the communities of Carcross, Haines Junction, and Teslin. Institutional support for this convening is provided by the Yukon School of Visual Art (SOVA), Yukon Arts Centre (YAC), and Teslin Tlingit Heritage Centre. Please continue checking back, as further information will be released in the coming months.
