The purpose of the Indigenous Pathways Initiative is to increase access to public funding by Indigenous artists in Saskatchewan, either to develop their artistic/cultural practices or to share their art, skills and teachings.
Two types of grants are available:
Support Indigenous artists to work independently on their own artistic/cultural practice, either in a traditional or contemporary art form
Support Indigenous artists and Traditional Knowledge Keepers/Elders to share their art, skills and teachings with their communities through activities such as workshops, gatherings or mentorships.
This program includes funds received through the 2005 Canada Games Building Dreams and Champions Legacy Program: Emerging Aboriginal Artists Award. This initiative provides support to young emerging Aboriginal artists in the province who are just starting out on a career path in the arts. The Jury may designate one or more grants to be supported using these funds.
