Gwaandak Theatre, the Yukon’s only Indigenous-centered theatre company, was founded in Whitehorse in 1999 by theatre artists Leonard Linklater and Patti Flather. “One meaning of “Gwaandak” in the Gwich’in language is “storyteller”. Our stories question, honour, and celebrate. They explore themes around decolonization, cultural identity, social justice, underrepresented voices and human rights. Gwaandak Theatre develops, produces and tours plays for both youth and adults. Our programming also includes new play workshops, readings and training for theatre artists.
We’re often looking for volunteers for the following positions:
TECH/LOGISTIC (need some strength)
BOX OFFICE (comps, memberships, tickets sales)
USHER/TICKETS AT THE DOOR
HOSPITALITY (reception night)
STRIKE (need some strength)
Volunteers are able to see plays for free the night of their volunteering or on another night!
