At the most recent grant deadlines, the Saskatchewan Arts Board awarded funding to more than 180 individuals and organizations, totaling almost $5.3 million. Arts Board funding supports a variety of initiatives, including organizations that provide ongoing programs in the arts, the creative work of professional artists, community art projects and the engagement of professional artists to work in schools with students and teachers.

Established in 1948, the Saskatchewan Arts Board is the oldest public arts funder in North America and second oldest in the world after the Arts Council of Great Britain.

They provide grants, programs and services to individuals and groups whose activities have an impact on the arts in Saskatchewan and ensure that opportunities exist for Saskatchewan residents to experience all art forms.
