SEPTEMBER’S OP/ED FOCUS ON THE EMMA LAKE KENDERDINE CAMPUS
The Saskatchewan Arts Alliance thinks it's high time for the university to dust off the Kenderdine file and move it to the front burner. Editor of SAA’s Op/Ed, Marcus Miller, asked two people with close ties to the campus to speak to the situation. This month’s Op/Ed features Gordon Barnhart, Interim President + Vice-Chancellor, U of S as well as artist and art reviewer Marsha DeLouchery-Day.


SAVE THE DATE: NEW DANCE HORIZON 29TH SEASON KICK OFF
Free admission! Everyone welcome! Catch sneak peeks of the season's shows, including live performances by Yvonne Chartrand, Kayla Henry, and Bill Coleman on September 23 at 10:30 am at the U of R Shu-box Theatre. Please RSVP to Larissa Shasko at events@newdancehorizons.ca.
