Are you Zero Waste Yukon’s next artist in residence?December 7, 2022

What we’re looking for:

• bold ideas for systemic change,
• effective pathways to zero waste and circular economies,
• alternatives to our take-make-waste mentality,
• a call to action in the interest of caring for our planet, ecosystems and communities.
Find the full list of requirements in our application.
A maximum of 5 Yukon artists will be accepted into the program for the year 2023.
