With a focus on mentorship between emerging and established artists, we will preserve, revitalize, strengthen, respect, and honor Indigenous contributions to Canadian art. This program is designed to foster a more substantive relationship between artists working on a national or international level to mentor local artists in the Saskatoon and surrounding areas. Year Two is ka’ksimo (Blackfoot for sage) signifying the release of the past, and moving into the future.

Our recently-renovated Artist-in-Residence studio is 414 sq  ft, with a projector, Dutch door to give artists control over their public interactions, sink, and plenty of storage.

Our next artist-in-residence is Jaime Black-Morsette. Jaime will be in our studio in August 2024, and is the second artist in Year 2 of the program.

Jaime Black-Morsette is a Red River Métis artist and activist, with family scrip signed in the community of St. Andrews, Manitoba. Jaime lives and works on her home territory near the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Founder of the REDress Project in 2009, Black-Morsette has been using their art practice as a way to gather community and create action and change around the epidemic of violence against Indigenous women and girls across Turtle Island for over a decade. Black-Morsette’s interdisciplinary practice includes immersive film and video, instillation art, photography, and performance art practices. Her work explores themes of memory, identity, place, and resistance.
