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.

OUR MANDATE: Our mandate is to ensure that Indigenous artists within the city of Regina and surrounding areas are consistently provided with the space and environment that allows them to develop their self-determined artistic practices through critical exchange with their peers and audiences

Roadside Attractions is a public art project launching summer 2018 from July 1st to August 31st across Saskatchewan. Organized by Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina Public Library, and partners across the province, Roadside Attractions presents a network of contemporary art commissions across Saskatchewan during the summer of 2018. Each participating artist considers the unique histories, geographies, and populations of their exhibition locations – factors that have shaped dozens of Saskatchewan spaces into meaningful places. Over 20 art works by 21 artists will be presented across the province, over a 20 hour drive. The project has received prestigious funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, and Tourism Saskatchewan.
