The ArtsSmarts Saskatchewan Program is a dynamic approach to generating and sustaining innovative partnerships, and to teaching, learning, doing and thinking in ways that can change the lives of students, artists, educators, schools and communities. The program offers schools and their communities a chance to enhance arts-related activities that are linked to educational outcomes through partnerships with professional artists. The program includes a TreatySmarts initiative that provides students with opportunities to explore treaty topics, concepts and understandings.
New to the program in 2013-14 is a GénieArts Pilot that provides francophone and French- immersion schools with opportunities to explore the identity of fransaskois people through arts experiences and partnerships with professional francophone artists. Also new at the 2013 deadline, is Raising the Bar, a one-time-only initiative that provides opportunities to celebrate the North American Indigenous Games and to explore Indigenous culture and sports.
This program is offered through a partnership among the Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskCulture Inc., and the Ministry of Education. ArtsSmarts Saskatchewan belongs to a national network of ArtsSmarts programs across the country.
