Enduring Support for the Arts

2018 Recipients

Awards from the Foundation were first made in 2007. Awards have been made in years when funds have been available from the growing endowments, or when funds have been donated for specific annual awards.

These awards are made possible because of the generosity of our donors. Thank you for keeping the arts alive in Saskatchewan.

The Foundation gratefully acknowledges the expertise of the Saskatchewan Arts Board for the juried process.
