The Saskatchewan Arts Board is pleased to announce the Creative Industries Transition Fund.
This short-term grant program is available to Saskatchewan artists, professional arts organizations, companies, producers and creative industry sector organizations. It provides project support for initiatives that advance market development and distribution goals for Saskatchewan commercial cultural products. The fund also supports screen-based media productions that demonstrate market interest.
The fund is a one-time resource available during the period of transition to a proposed new agency that will serve the creative industries. For more information on the Creative Industries Transition Fund and to apply for funding, visit www.artsboard.sk.ca/citf.
“We are pleased to partner with the Government of Saskatchewan to provide transitional funding to the creative industries,” Arts Board Chair Byrna Barclay said. “As the Arts Board marks our 65th anniversary this year, it is historically significant that we celebrate by responding to our arts community's needs for stability and expansion, not only during this transitional phase, but also as a continuation of our legislated mandate to enable the creation and preservation of the arts, as well as their accessibility to the people of Saskatchewan.”
The Creative Industries Transition Fund is administered by the Saskatchewan Arts Board and funded by the Government of Saskatchewan through an agreement with the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport.
