The Saskatchewan Arts Board is pleased to announce two new grants: Artists in Communities Micro-Development Grant and Artists in Schools Micro-Development Grant.

These grants allow organizations and schools access to small amounts of money to: build relationships with potential artists, present “experimental” introductory projects and/or assess community or school needs, research and/or develop plans for longer-term projects or residencies. Organizations or schools can apply for up to $1,000, plus expenses related to artist travel, to support eligible expenses.

The Artists in Communities program provides opportunities that enable community-based organizations to offer arts-related activities that are linked to local communities through partnerships with professional artists/arts professionals. These partnerships are supported in forms of projects and residencies.

The Artists in Schools program offers Saskatchewan K-12 students enhanced arts-related activities that are directly linked to cross-curricular and cross-cultural educational outcomes through collaborative inquiry-based processes with professional artists. Partnerships are established between the school and professional artists/arts professionals, and activities are supported in forms of projects and residencies.
