Common Weal Community Arts Respond to Racism program explores how the arts can provide tools to address racism by supporting education, bridging, and dialogue in communities across Southern Saskatchewan.

This programming is possible due to generous funding from the Saskatchewan Arts Board Artist in Communities Residencies grant program, SaskCulture Inc., thanks to the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation, and with the support of our project partners: South West District for Culture, Recreation & Sport, Parks Canada, and Prairie Wind & Silver Sage.
