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. 

The Artists in Communities -- Micro-Development Grant 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, workshops, exhibitions, commissions, etc. led by a professional artist or arts professional (e.g. curator), and presented as single events or as a series; and to research, plan and develop an artist residency that may lead to an application for an Artist in Residence project.

Artists in Communities -- Residencies allows eligible applicants to host an artist in residence project by contracting a professional Saskatchewan artists in any discipline to collaboratively engage the community in arts activities.

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.
