UnFURled is a project honoring Yukon’s trapping history and celebrating its future. We are planning a immersive event in the spring of 2018.

Understanding

Using short films, compelling portraits, displays, and creating opportunities for people to interact with the trappers themselves, we hope to increase understanding of why people trap. By sharing stories of family, history, and lifestyle, we want to change perceptions of the industry and demonstrate how fur can be a part of everyday lives.
