Outpost 31 Goes to Cannes

The founders of Outpost 31 were recently selected to attend the Cannes Film Festival through a program called Not Short on Talent. The program, a Telefilm initiative, recognized the Yukon company for its short film The Changeling. I sat down with Neil Macdonald, filmmaker and co-founder of Outpost 31, to discuss the experience.

Makers’ Market

If you’ve ever walked by Northlight and wondered what goes on in that building? this is your chance to find out!

Yukonstruct Society is hosting a Members’ Market from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on May 11. The market will take place in the main event space at Northlight – 2180 2nd Ave.

Makespace members will be displaying items they’ve made onsite, including art, jewellery, wooden furniture and more. Cospace members will have information tables set up and be available to talk to you about what they do.

Admission is free!

Women in the Woodshop

Every 2nd Monday of the month from 6:30 – 9:00 pm Yukonstruct is now offering drop-in space for makerspace members who identify as women, trans, or gender non-binary to come and use the woodshop in a safe and supportive environment. 

How it works:
  • You must be an active makerspace member to attend, and you must have previously taken the woodshop safety orientation class.
  • While there will be a makerspace volunteer or staff member present, this is not a programmed event – there is no set project, taught class, or agenda for the evening.
  • There will be a limited supply of project kits available for sale (first come first serve) with instructions that you can work through.
  • You could come with your existing project to work on. You could also come to practice using a piece of machinery, to get advice from other members, or just to meet other woodshop makers like you in our community!
Our goal is to make sure that the makerspace is inclusive of everyone. Although we have a welcoming community of makers, we also understand that the woodshop can be an intimidating space for some.
