Culture Days raises the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities
· A wide range of funding programs;
· Province-wide cultural promotions;
· A voice for culture with governments and decision-makers;
· Linkages to a diverse cultural network; and
· Many different organizational development opportunities.
All of which is designed to nurture a thriving cultural community, increase awareness of the value of culture and cultural activity, as well as increase participation by all peoples in Saskatchewan’s diverse cultural experiences.
Established in 1948, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, now operating as SK Arts, is the oldest public arts funder in North America, and second oldest in the world after the Arts Council of Great Britain. Governed by The Arts Board Act, 1997, we provide grants, programs, and services to individuals and groups whose activities have an impact on the arts in Saskatchewan and ensure that opportunities exist for Saskatchewan residents to experience all art forms.
For more than 70 years, you’ve known us as the Saskatchewan Arts Board. But even the strongest identities need a refresh over time.
Today we introduce you to SK Arts.
Our new look honours our roots and also reflects the creativity and boldness of the arts in this province.
The name may have changed, but our commitment to supporting the full spectrum of the vibrant arts community of Saskatchewan remains the same.
