(YELLOWKNIFE, NT - June 23, 2015) NWT Pride is proud to announce the theme for our 2015 festival, “Free To Be”. 


“Free To Be” is about recognizing everyone’s right to be who they want to be and love who they want to love without judgement. The NWT Pride festival celebrates our individuality and our differences. We aim to create a place that promotes visibility for all of our diverse communities. This year we are recognizing every individual’s right to act, speak, and think freely.

A Second Public Art Pop-Up Display In Yellowknife

~~Yellowknife still loves its public art. Come see a new pop-up installation, corner of Burwash Drive & Rycon Drive!


These eye-catching, re-purposed traffic signs are fun to view in the daytime, but they also dance with reflections at night!

Bring a flashlight to shine on these works, and watch the graphics reflect back at you just like a sign on the highway!

It’s Free! On display for a limited time during March.
