Situated in the traditional territories of the Kwanlin Dun First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, the Jenni House has been providing an inspirational creative space for artists since 2015. Sitting on the banks of the Yukon River, this historic log and timber frame building is part of Shipyards Park - a treasured community hub for the residents of Whitehorse. Currently the residency is located next door at the Chambers House during the winter months.

The Residency provides studio space, honoraria and funding for travel, accommodation, subsistence to artists from the Yukon, its northern neighbours (the Northwest Territories, Northern BC and Nunavut) as well as circumpolar countries, subject to Yukon Chief Medical Officer of Health, Yukon and Canadian government requirements associated with COVID-19.

Monthly residencies allow those working in visual arts, film and media, music, literary arts, spoken word and multi-disciplinary/multimedia arts to step away from their every day and immerse themselves in their craft, in an environment that is historically, culturally and geographically relevant.

Sponsored by ArtsNet Society, Yukon Film Society, Yukon Arts Centre, Music Yukon, Jazz Yukon and others. With stellar support from the City of Whitehorse, Government of Yukon Arts Fund - Minister of Tourism & Culture, each member of the residency consortium, along with donations from generous individuals and businesses.
