Indigenous Peoples Art and Artists

Supports the development and continuation of Indigenous Peoples' art forms.

SK Arts - Grants - Grants by Type - Indigenous Peoples Art and Artists

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

The one-time-only Equipment Purchase Fund will provide support for artists who wish to make a capital purchase, something that is generally ineligible in the current Independent Artists program. See below for Guidelines.


Deadlines

  • Indigenous People's Art and Artists: April 15 and October 15
