Festival of Native Arts 2021 will be virtual! Our theme is “Honor Our Elders” and the Festival of Native Arts will take place March 25th-27th, 2021. Having a virtual festival means that people from all over Alaska who might not have been able to travel to Fairbanks can participate this year! We need your help to make this year’s celebration great!
We will be sharing dance videos, hosting virtual workshops, and having a live virtual artist marketplace. We are seeking dance videos to share and artists who want to sell their work in our marketplace. We will be awarding $250 for dance videos. Artists sellers will be featured and shared with a large audience.
We want to translate this year’s theme, “Honor Our Elders” into as many Alaska Native Languages as possible. We would also like to share Elder wisdom with our communities via video messages.
Please see the links below to all of our applications for dancers, artists, and culture bearers. There are links to provide translations and instructions for elder video messages. We are here to answer any questions that you may have and look forward to working with you. Please be in touch!
