The Creative Partnerships program encourages and stimulates partnership opportunities that contribute to community development and animation through the arts.
Explorations grants (Explore and Connect or Explore and Develop) assist communities to explore opportunities for arts and cultural engagement in partnership with a professional artist in any discipline.
Innovations grants assist eligible applicants to contract a professional Saskatchewan artist to engage the community in innovative activity in the arts and to explore opportunities that increase access to arts activity.
Eligible applicants include communities, non-profit organizations, incorporated for-profit companies, school divisions, band schools, other educational institutions, health care or justice facilities, incorporated municipalities, First Nations and Métis.
The Creative Partnerships Program is a joint initiative of the Saskatchewan Arts Board and SaskCulture and is supported by funding provided by the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation. Other stakeholders contribute to the program and assist with its design and delivery.
