Artists in Communities -- Arts After Hours responds to a need for increased out-of-school, community-based arts programming for children and youth throughout the province that is not connected to K-12 curriculum outcomes. NOTE: Projects funded through Arts After Hours are now funded under Projects.

Artists in Communities -- Micro-Development allows organizations access to small amounts of money to: build relationships with potential artists, present “experimental” introductory projects and/or assess community needs, research, and/or develop plans for longer term projects or residencies.

Artists in Communities -- Projects allows eligible applicants to engage in the arts through performances, exhibitions or workshops led by a professional artist(s) or arts professional, and presented either as a series or as a single event and/or to work with an artist in the research and development of an artistic residency.

Artists in Communities -- Residencies supports community organizations to host a six- to 12-month artist-in-residence project with a professional artist, working in any art form, that involves significant community engagement components. Participating artists take up residence in a community contribute to its cultural life and the community's continual engagement in the arts.

Artists in Communities is a Saskatchewan Arts Board program supported by funding from SaskCulture Inc. through the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation.
