Gravelbourg Artisan Co-Op Doing Big Things in Small Town Sask.

A small town in southwest Saskatchewan is doing big things, providing support and community for Saskatchewan artists. Gravelbourg Artisan Co-op, also known as GAC, was formed in 2018 with an interest in being a retail and event space to help artists grow and scale their physical practice, particularly those who did not have the ability or finances to have their own storefronts or webpages. Their plans were, however, interrupted by the pandemic. Forced into a virtual space, the Co-op experienced an organic shift into being more community oriented.
