The Saskatchewan Arts Alliance (SAA or Arts Alliance) is an inclusive, member-driven coalition of arts organizations that provides a collective voice for the arts community of Saskatchewan.
SAA advocacy promotes establishment of arts policies and support measures that foster a healthy environment for artists and the arts. Advocacy efforts include recognition by politicians, government and public of the importance of arts in society and the protection of artist rights and freedoms. SAA works with government and other parties that support and encourage the arts.
SAA supports its members advocacy efforts by providing professional development, support information, analysis and research.
SAA organizes arts community meetings to discuss issues, formulate strategies and develop plans of action. These meetings provide an opportunity for the entire arts community to pool resources, both human and financial, reducing the burden on individual organizations. The meetings also provide the community with information on SAA activities, including interagency discussions.
The SAA also assists government and its agencies in the development of visions, priorities, and goals. Through SAA initiatives, government and its agencies have access to a collective community voice.
SAA consults with the arts community to develop goals and articulates them to government, business and the public. Consultation occurs through SAA communication services and community meetings.
We hold community meetings in various parts of the province – no place is too large or too small. If you are interested in having us come to your community, please let us know.
