ROVING SINGERS – The Breckenridge and Kinney families, who are isolating together, are travelling around Whitehorse singing for elderly people. The Happy Animal Singers take bookings, and will go to the house and present a short set. Care is taken to stay far away from anybody else. Here, they entertain Annie and Allanna Wiebe on Thursday in Takhini West. To have them sing for you, email amysinclair83@hotmail.com.

GRADUALLY VANISHING

GRADUALLY VANISHING – Leslie Leong has permafrost from Tuktoyaktuk, N.W.T. melting in her front yard in Whitehorse. She is making a time-lapse video of the melt as an art project. The creation of artwork will be based on the original size of the permafrost, the small pile of solid matter remaining after melting, and the time-lapse video. The idea is to show how little solid matter is under many communities in the circumpolar world – meaning whole communities will just slump into the ocean as the Arctic warms.
