Get Paid to show Yellowknife your Art!

Good day Artists,

Once again, the Aurora Arts Society is excited to present Artist Demonstrations at the Museum Café, and we are looking for artists who are interested in demonstrating their work.

Each month, up to 5 artists will demonstrate their art form and the public is invited to watch and learn. These demonstrations provide the community with an insight on the techniques used by various artists to create their work, and give visitors a chance to interact directly with the artist in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.




Do you feel like the *good* music never gets airplay? Radio Taïga CIVR 103,5 FM wants to meet you. The NWT's only alternative dial is seeking volunteer music programmers and DJ's.

We are looking for music buffs who would be interested in curating one or many of our alternative specialty playlists: groove, indie rock, metal/punk/hardcore, new folk, contemporary world, jazz, electronic, hip hop.
