Saskatchewan Views the Global Pandemic - Western Development Museum
The novel coronavirus is causing an unprecedented crisis - a global shock that will be remembered for many lifetimes to come. To collect this history as it occurs, the WDM has launched an online exhibition, Saskatchewan Views the Global Pandemic at saskviews.ca. This crowd-sourced photograph exhibit focuses on how the Covid-19 outbreak is affecting individuals, families, communities, and the province. The public is asked to contribute photos and captions that illustrate their experiences of Covid-19. These stories will help document the impact of the pandemic in Saskatchewan. Citizens can help the WDM record this moment in history by contributing to Saskatchewan Views the Global Pandemic online. The WDM would like to see photographs from as many people and places as possible. Visit saskviews.ca to share your Saskatchewan story.

Saskatoon: Where the Art Is
In the fall of 2019 the City of Saskatoon hosted the Creative City Network of Canada Summit. This three day conference for municipal cultural workers provided an opportunity for Saskatoon to share knowledge and highlight its dynamic arts and culture scene. Saskatoon artist Andrei Feheregyhazi was selected to create a short animated film to promote this event. His film, Saskatoon: Where the Art Is, is sponsored by Saskatchewan's Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport and the City of Saskatoon. The composition for the video was created by local musician, Dean Summach.
Every year, in the last weekend of September, Culture Days activities are available in Saskatoon. Culture Days is a national event that is free to participants and involves hands-on experiences that provide the public “backstage” or “behind-the-scenes” access to share in how art is made.
It is an invitation to the public to connect, engage and co-create in an innovative way in the arts. There are many opportunities for engagement and participation. Local businesses and emerging artists are encouraged to host and collaborate with artistic troupes in diverse cultural practices.
