SAA TO CONSULT WITH MEMBERSHIP
SAA is consulting with its member organizations to get a picture of any challenges they might be facing. This will give us on-the-ground information to help inform our advocacy work. We are looking for an overall view of the “state of things” and we will be collating responses to avoid linking any specific answers to any specific organization.

If your organization would be interested in participating in these consultations, please email Ian: research@artsalliance.sk.ca, or call the SAA office. Our research officer, Ian McWilliams, will be conducting the consultations, which should take approximately 10 minutes via telephone.
