Print & Publishing Festival

The Print & Publishing Festival presents an inclusive, innovative, and community-minded multi-day celebration of visual printmaking, literature, publishing, and heritage. Featured guests range from emerging to established printmakers, publishers and writers, all embracing a spirit of independent creativity while remaining open to collaborative processes.

Workshops and daytime Festival events take place in the rarely-accessed home of the Dawson Daily News, one of Dawson City’s early newspapers (printed from 1899 to 1954). Since the first year of this project, an 1890s Chandler & Price letterpress, formerly used at the Whitehorse Star, has been completely restored for use. Other original artifacts are on display thanks to Parks Canada.

Past projects and events have included exhibitions, readings, printmaking and creative writing workshops, seminars and discussions on writing and publishing, ongoing artist projects, a collaborative publication production with writers and printmakers, hands-on artist demonstrations, performances, live radio broadcasts, writing competitions, collaborative comic-making, artist talks, lectures, and more.
