The Share and Connect: Indigenous Community Arts program seeks to empower Indigenous communities to control and develop their own arts and culture. It promotes resilience and healing by:
- sharing Indigenous arts and cultural revitalization within Indigenous communities and with broader communities;
- increasing the intergenerational transfer of Indigenous artistic knowledge and cultural practices within contemporary, traditional, and non-traditional art forms;
- promoting Truth and Reconciliation in non-Indigenous communities through exposure to these projects and this work; and
- aligning with the mandate and strategic priorities of SK Arts and our program partners.
Share and Connect is a SK Arts program supported by funding from Sask Lotteries through the partnership between SK Arts and SaskCulture Inc.
