Culture Days Funding Opportunity

on .

SaskCulture, in collaboration with Rivers West District for Sport, Culture & Recreation, will be offering the Culture Days Animateur Program again this year. This offer is to the communities within Rivers West District that have not held a Culture Days Animateur activity and/or event before.

Communities can apply to have an Animateur (an artist or cultural worker) present a cultural activity for their residents during Culture Days which takes place on September 27th to 29th, 2019.

What will the Animateur do?
The Animateur works with the community organizers to identify and deliver an interactive cultural activity that would engage a range of community residents with a goal of building audiences for the activity.
 
Why is this an opportunity?
SaskCulture wants to encourage communities to engage residents in cultural activity. It will pay an honorarium of $1,000 (inclusive of all costs) to a District in partnership with a community to hire a Saskatchewan artist or cultural worker to deliver interactive, free, hands on activity.
 
What does the community need to do?
  • A community would need to identify a community organizer to head up the project.
  • The community organizer would identify the artist or cultural worker (Animateur).
  • The community organizer would be a liaison to the Animateur.
  • The community organizer would book the facility.
  • The community organizer would register the activity on the Culture Days website at www.culturedays.ca
  • The community organizer would promote the Culture Days activity to the community at large.
  • The community organizer would provide a brief follow up after completion of the activity.
Who can apply?
Any Rivers West District community that has not participated in the Animateur program before.
Deadline to apply?
You must submit the Expression of Interest by July 28th, 2019. One community per District will be selected.
Send completed Expression of Interest form to:  Bonnie Mills Midgley, Community Development Coordinator, P.O. Box 84, Frenchman Butte, Sask., S0M 0W0 or email the fillable PDF to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
