SaskCulture's Canada 150 project, funded by Canadian Heritage, called Resilience & Respect: Canada 150 & Beyond, is drawing to an end. Our project partners - the Buffalo People Arts Institute, Gabriel Dumont Institute, Saskatchewan Indigenous Cultural Centre, Saskatchewan Aboriginal Writing Circle Inc., and Saskatchewan Arts Board - worked throughout the year on cultural programming that highlighted the resilience of Indigenous peoples, cultures and languages. It is now SaskCulture's turn to deliver its part of the project - please save the date(s):
The Saskatoon gathering will focus on examining how the province's cultural community can move forward together with Indigenous cultural organizations in a manner that is respectful, collaborative and meaningful.
The two-day gathering in Regina will provide youth-focused programming during the day and public programming in the evening.
Both are FREE to attend and will provide the opportunity to network with the project partners; learn about the work they have carried out in 2017; direct focus to "the beyond" part of the Respect and Resilience which is youth engagement; and ignite dialogue about how the province's cultural community can move forward together respectfully, collaboratively and meaningfully.
Details will be shared on SaskCulture's website as soon as they are confirmed
