The Indigenous Peoples Art and Artists program supports the development and continuation of Indigenous Peoples’ art forms in Saskatchewan.

The program offers three grant streams:

Basic: supports simple projects that accomplish one or two things in any art form. This could be a great starting place for an artist who has not received SK Arts funding in the past.

Intermediate: supports more complex requests for moderate-sized artistic projects

Major: supports professional Indigenous artists with a significant sustained practice, working independently, collaboratively or as a collective, to accomplish a substantial project over an extended period


April 15 and October 15

NOTE: Grant recipients who have had projects deferred due to COVID-19 may apply for grants for new projects at the April 15, 2021 deadline. Read more
