Display Cases

At City Centre branch: Selected photographs from the "This Is Our Arctic" exhibit. Photographs featured were taken by youth from the community of Inuvik, Northwest Territories.

At Poirier branch: Selected photographs from the "This Is Our Arctic" exhibit. Photographs featured were taken by youth from the community of Old Crow, Yukon. 

The "This Is Our Arctic" exhibit showcases photography from youths between the ages of 10 and 16. The photos capture both evidence of climate change, and give a glimpse into the lives of northern youth.

We have display cases at both branches for local artists and crafters to exhibit their works. For more information and an application form click here.
