Grants of up to $45,000 to Saskatchewan incorporated for-profit companies or nonprofit community-based organizations for collaborative partnerships with individual professional artists. Collaborations between organizations and artists must be initiated prior to applying. Funding is intended to enable artists to reside in local communities to enhance community engagement in the arts and local cultural life. Artists can work in any art form.
The Saskatchewan Arts Board supports Artist in Communities – Residencies where a community organization hosts a six- to twelve-month artist-in-residence with one professional artist from any artistic discipline hired full-time (35-40 hours/week). The artist and community partnership collectively determine a schedule splitting this time 50/50 to accommodate the artist's independent practice and the programming needs of the community.
