The Saskatchewan Arts Board provides support to the arts in Saskatchewan: to artists, arts organizations and communities on behalf of the people of the province.
It was established in 1948 as the first agency of its kind in North America and second in the world to the Arts Council of Great Britain. In the decades since then, it has continued as a leader in the country, and builds on this strong tradition to meet ongoing opportunities for public investment in the arts community.
We support the arts through programs, funding and services in order to enrich well-being, creativity, diversity and prosperity. The Arts Board has offices located in both Regina and Saskatoon, and our professional staff is available to consult with artists, arts organizations and community members regarding our programs and application process.
Our Mission: The Saskatchewan Arts Board recognizes, encourages and supports the arts to enrich community well-being, creativity, diversity and prosperity.
Our Vision: A creative society where the arts, artistic expression and innovation play a dynamic role and are accessible to everyone in Saskatchewan.
The Arts Board is governed by The Arts Board Act, 1997, and funded by the Government of Saskatchewan through the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport, with additional support from the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation as a result of the Arts Board's partnership with SaskCulture Inc.
