The arts are important. They strengthen social bonds and communities, allow both groups and individuals a means to express themselves, and they establish a sense of community identity, which can be expressed at home and abroad. Simply stated, the arts matter.
This video was created in partnership between the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance and the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative. Eleven individuals were interviewed on why the arts matter.
