This episode is sponsored by the South West District for Culture, Recreation and Sport Inc.

Kevin Power is joined by guests who have a passion for the history found inside museums. In this episode we focus on the Avonlea Heritage Museum in Avonlea, Saskatchewan. The former CNR station, built in 1912 now proudly displays artifacts that take visitors on a journey back in time.
The Avonlea museum has taken advantage of funding available through the Canada Summer Jobs and Young Canada Works funding made available by the Canadian Government. This funding allows the museum to hire students to work at the museums full-time through this funding.

This episode of SaskScapes features three of the students who have worked at the museum. Tanner, Jaida and Micah share their passion for the job, their love of the area, and some really entertaining stories about frightening mannequins and pump organs!

General Manager, Cathy Geisler and Board member Darlene Watson are also featured in this episode and discuss the benefits of hiring students, the gratitude for the funding, and the passion and pride they take in their community and museum.

Indeed, the is a road to Avonlea...and I suggest you take it on your next trip!

Throughout 2017 SaskCulture has had the remarkable opportunity and privilege to build and strengthen relationships with a number of First Nation and Métis cultural partners in the province through our Canada 150 project, funded by Canadian Heritage, called Resilience & Respect: Canada 150 & Beyond

Canada’s sesquicentennial was a starting point: an opportunity to reflect on the important work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and its 94 Calls to Action, to help ensure that Indigenous peoples are genuinely inspired to recognize positive change in Canada over the next 150 years.

Join Kevin Power and his guests at a gathering held in Saskatoon on January 26, 2018.   This final event for Resilience and Respect: Canada 150 and Beyond is not the end of the partnership or its work. Instead, it marks the next step in a journey together toward a more meaningful, respectful and rewarding relationship – one that supports positive changes needed in communities and cultural organizations in this province.

How involved are you in my community?  Imagine what it must be like for newcomers to Saskatchewan who have so many challenges that many of us take for granted. Perhaps learning a new language, adapting to a new climate, finding ones place in the community and so much more.

INVOLVE is an initiative launched in 2015 through the combined efforts of the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (MCoS), SaskCulture and the Regina Open Door Society (RODS).  

The facilitator training program readies select participants from local community organizations to integrate INVOLVE into their own communities.  In turn, newcomers have opportunities where they can begin to contribute to their communities and have their voices heard.

Kevin Power is joined by guests from MCoS, SaskCulture, RODS, and the city of Yorkton.  You'll hear about the exciting impact INVOLVE is having, and will continue to have throughout Saskatchewan.

In 2017, Canadians across the country have been planning how their communities would celebrate 150 years of Confederation.  Among those hundreds of events and projects came an idea initiated by Alberta artist Louis Lavoie. A dream to connect our country by creating the mural mosaics project. 150 communities, participated throughout the year, in creating their own murals made from hundreds of individually painted tiles. 

Yorkton, Saskatchewan. was one of the participating communities and clearly that city couldn’t have been more proud of the result.  In this episode Kevin Power is joined by 6 guests, via telephone, who contributed to the  creation of the Yorkton mosaic.  In the end, Yorkton’s mural consisted of over 600 individually painted tiles. The links to the mural mosaic project can be found here,  as well as links to the city of Yorkton and the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery
