Carol Greyeyes, Policy and Planning Advisor for SK Arts will retire in December 2023. After a collective 13 years served over three separate occasions, Greyeyes spearheaded several initiates with the agency to serve the arts community.

Carol established our Indigenous funding program, currently called Indigenous Peoples Art and Artists (IPAA), and the Share and Connect: Indigenous Community Arts program. She also made significant contributions to Artists in Schools, Artists in Communities and the newly launched Building Arts Equity: BPOC Program.

“Although this is the third time I have worked for the organization, I feel even more fortunate to have participated in SK Arts growth and development during the last four years. I especially value and appreciate the changes that have been made as the agency embraces equity, diversity, and inclusion in both its public and internal operations,” said Greyeyes.

An actress, writer, director, teacher, arts administrator and member of the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation, Greyeyes pursued a long career in the arts. She was the Artistic Director of the Centre for Indigenous Theatre, the founding Principal of the Indigenous Theatre School in Toronto. She has directed and taught in theatres across North America and has acted in film, television, radio and on stage. She was also an assistant professor in the Department of Drama at the University of Saskatchewan and the founding coordinator of the wîchêhtowin Theatre Program. As a administrator, she was SK Arts' first Indigenous Arts Advisor. She currently holds the position of Policy and Planning Advisor, from which she is retiring this month.

“Reconciliation and equity justice in the arts are movements I feel very proud to have contributed to, and even though my tenure at SK Arts is coming to an end, I feel confident that they will continue well beyond my time with the organization."
