SAA IS ON THE MOVE…
Saskatchewan Arts Alliance is moving its office to a new location. As of March 1, 2005, our new address is #205A 2314 – 11th Ave., Regina, S4P 0K1. All other coordinates remain the same.

2005 ARTS CONGRESS
The 2005 Arts Congress will be held in Regina on May 6th and 7th. Watch for details in the coming weeks.

BUSINESS AND THE ARTS CASE STUDY #1
In 2004, Saskatchewan Arts Alliance conducted a project to research the service relationship between arts and business. The project resulted in Business and the Arts: Service Relationship Indicators Final Report. To augment the final report, six case studies were written to illustrate a number of concepts and principles described in the report.

In this Bulletin, we present Case Study #1: Art Gallery of Swift Current Business and the Arts: Case Study #1, which speaks about the importance of the arts contributing to quality of life, and shows the need for organizations to nurture relationships and properly acknowledge support.

For a copy of the Business and the Arts Final Report, contact the SAA at (306)780-9820 or info@artsalliance.sk.ca. An Executive Summary of the report is available on the SAA website at Business and the Arts Final Report: Executive Summary.
