Cultural Gathering—Fort Qu’Appelle—March 23, 2017 by Celina Quewezance
The Prairie Central District held a Cultural Gathering workshop on March 23, 2017 at the Treaty Four Governance Building Classroom in Fort Qu’appelle. The 24 participants in attendance were from the communities of Day Star First Nation, Pasqua First Nation, Fort Qu’appelle, Kawacatoose First Nation, Yellow Quill First Nation and Humboldt Carlton Trail College. The workshop provided the participants with the opportunity to hear about programs and services from Saskatchewan cultural organizations. The presenters were: Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (Jamal-e-Fatima), SaskCulture (Damon Badger-Heit, Dennis Garreck, & Dominga Robinson), Saskatchewan Arts Board (Jay Kimball) and the Museums Association of Saskatchewan (Emma Morris). The Saskatchewan Writers Guild (Nickita Longman and Oin Nicholson) were also in attendance. Three staff members from the Prairie Central District also shared grant information and programs. Thank you to all the presenters and organizations for their assistance in making this workshop a success.
Please watch for the next PCDSCR Cultural Gathering on September 21, 2017 when, Kristin Catherwood from Heritage Saskatchewan will be presenting on Intangible Cultural Heritage. Location and details will follow in August.
