Welcome to Sâkêwêwak
Incorporated in 1996, Sâkêwêwak has been supporting Indigenous artists in the Regina area for over two decades. All artists need a community of support, and members to engage with in order to succeed. Sâkêwêwak provides this support, giving artists a chance to create, grow, and reach audiences.
Regular programming includes our yearly Story Tellers Festival, our annual residencies, workshops, performances and exibitions.
If you identify as an Indigenous artist, or you just want to show your support, we encourage you to buy a membership, or submit a donation. We welcome anyone that agrees with our vision and mandate to join our organization as a member.
