Independent Artists Projects support Indigenous artists to work independently on their own artistic/cultural practice, either in a traditional or contemporary art form.
Community Projects support Indigenous artists and Traditional Knowledge Keepers/Elders to share their art, skills and teachings with their communities through activities such as workshops, gatherings or mentorships.
This program includes funds received through the 2005 Canada Games Building Dreams and Champions Legacy Program: Emerging Aboriginal Artists Award, which is administered by the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
