The Creative Kids Northern Cultural Fund is accepting applications until March 26. The fund offers support for creative and/or artistic programs aimed at children and youth ages four to 19 years living in northern communities. The programs must address the cultural, creative or artistic needs of the applicant’s community.
“By participating in creative activities at an early age, youth have the opportunity to build confidence, work with others, express themselves and learn new skills that will help shape them into the leaders of the future,” said Rose Gilks, CEO, SaskCulture, a non-profit cultural organization.
“Thanks to the support of our Cameco partner, this fund will continue to help ensure the opportunities are available for those interested in northern Saskatchewan.”
Creative Kids Northern Cultural Fund will help to provide life-changing opportunities for northern youth to attend cultural programming, such as culture camps, fiddle programs, art lessons, and jigging instruction.
“When you see kids participating in arts and cultural projects, you often see instant smiles,” said Jonathan Huntington, vice-president of Sustainability & Stakeholder Relations.
The Creative Kids Northern Cultural Fund is part of SaskCulture’s work with its Creative Kids program to ensure that all children and youth in Saskatchewan, who face financial barriers, are able to participate in creative activities of their choice.
