Grants of up to $10,000 to Saskatchewan for-profit companies, nonprofit CBOs, and artists for collaborative projects led by a professional artist or arts professional. Funding is intended for projects that allow eligible applicants to engage in the arts through exhibitions, performances, or workshops and/or to work with an artist in the research and development of an artistic residency. Projects can be presented as single events or as a series.

Eligible projects include:
- Projects that foster respectful, professional partnerships between artists and communities.
- The project must reflect an appreciation for high-quality arts programming and be developed in response to the community’s needs.
- Projects designed to connect with and engage participants in meaningful ways and have a lasting impact.
- Projects designed to engage with community and develop inquisitiveness by demonstrating a positive commitment to the exploration question. The exploration question will encourage community participants to make connections, construct meaning, and reflect critically on their own work.
- Projects that explore new approaches for presenting, and methods of expanding access within existing programs.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Deadlines:
- May 1, 2019

It is strongly recommended that applicants, particularly first-time applicants, contact a Program Consultant before preparing an application as they can clarify eligibility and program requirements and provide advice relevant to your application.

The partnership of Community Organization and Professional Artist must be in place prior to the submission.

It is recommended the Co-Applicants start their application at least one month before the deadline. Preparation time will include coordinating the project with established partnerships, gathering support material, working out budget information, and submitting the application online.

Applicants are typically informed of grant decisions by e-mail no later than 90 days after the application closing date.

The Co-Applicant (artist) may make more than one application at any submission deadline, up to the maximum allowable funding level as through residencies ($45,000). The jury will, however, consider the individual’s ability to undertake multiple projects when assessing the applications.
