Artists in Communities

Artists in Communities - Development provides small amounts of funding to organizations and/or professional artists or arts professionals to build relationships with potential partners, develop projects or residencies, and/or research community needs.

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.

Share and Connect: Indigenous Community Arts

The Share and Connect: Indigenous Community Arts program seeks to empower Indigenous communities to control and develop their own arts and culture. It promotes resilience and healing by:

  • Sharing Indigenous arts and cultural revitalization within Indigenous communities and with broader communities;
  • Increasing the intergenerational transfer of Indigenous artistic knowledge and cultural practices within contemporary, traditional, and non-traditional art forms;
  • Promoting Truth and Reconciliation in non-Indigenous communities through exposure to these projects and this work; and
  • Aligning with the mandate and strategic priorities of SK Arts and our program partners.


  • January 7 and June 7
