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 Storytellers Festival, our annual residencies, workshops, performances and exhibitions.
Our main office is located in Mezzanine Level of the beautiful First Nations University of Canada building.
Sâkêwêwak envisions a dynamic community of diverse artists who stimulate, share, exchange, engage and support the development of self-determined Indigenous art in a welcoming collaborative environment.

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.
