Dawson Daily News Print & Publishing Festival

May 29 - June 2

| Free

The Dawson Daily News Print & Publishing Festival presents an inclusive, innovative, and community-minded festival of visual printmaking, literature, publishing, and heritage, including the creation of contemporary works through historical processes. Featured guests include emerging and established printmakers, publishers and writers, all embracing a spirit of independent creativity while remaining open to collaborative processes.

Workshops and daytime Festival events take place in the rarely-accessed home of the Dawson Daily News, one of Dawson City’s early newspapers (printed from 1899 to 1954). Since the first year of this project, an 1890s Chandler & Price letterpress, formerly used at the Whitehorse Star, has been completely restored for use. Other original artifacts are on display thanks to Parks Canada.

Past projects and events have included exhibitions, readings, printmaking and creative writing workshops, seminars and discussions on writing and publishing, ongoing artist projects, a collaborative publication production with writers and printmakers, hands-on artist demonstrations, performances, live radio broadcasts, writing competitions, collaborative comic-making, artist talks, lectures, and more.

The Dawson Daily News is presented in partnership by the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture, Parks Canada, the Dawson City Community Library, the Writers’ Trust of Canada, and the BC & Yukon Book Prizes.
