The Klondike Institute for Arts and Culture (KIAC) is a community-based arts centre offering a rotating schedule of workshops, screenings, festivals, exhibitions, and creative courses. Come and explore our broad range of programming and experience the artistic side of Dawson.
KIAC is also responsible for organizing signature events, such as Dawson City’s International Short Film Festival (Easter weekend) and the Yukon Riverside Arts Festival (mid-August; Discovery Day Weekend). As well, we help to facilitate our seasonal Arts Market, which occurs weekly at Waterfront Park from June until August.
