Culture Days Funding Opportunity

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.

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 be a liaison to the Animateur.
  • The community organizer would book the facility.
