Our Mission

To provide funding and support to the arts for the benefit of all people in Saskatchewan.

Our Vision

 Saskatchewan artists, their work, and their contribution to the province’s quality of life are recognized and valued.

Our Values

SK Arts strives to uphold the following values, recognizing the Grandfather Teachings practiced by the Indigenous peoples of this land, in all our actions:

  • respect
  • generosity
  • wisdom
  • courage
  • integrity
  • truth
  • openness and
  • humility.

In addition, SK Arts’ programs and services are designed to reflect the following. 


We value risk-taking and boundary-pushing, and we seek to support the best-realized work of Saskatchewan artists – whether in the creation of new or traditional art in all forms, in its presentation, or in its connection to audiences.


We strive to empower the arts community, both as a leader and a follower, through advocacy, collaboration, consultation and responsiveness.


We support artists and arts activities that are created by and reflect the full diversity and demographics of the province. In respect for the original inhabitants, we engage actively with Saskatchewan Indigenous communities.


We accept the responsibility, owed to our stakeholders, that our policies and practices are transparent and reflect our commitment to effective stewardship of the public trust we hold.
