Saskatoon Community Youth Arts Programming (SCYAP) offers a unique employment experience known as URBAN CANVAS. After an hiatus period, Urban Canvas is back with massive support from the city of Saskatoon and the province of Saskatchewan. At-risk youth learn the vital skills to propel them forward in life using art and culture as a tool. Kevin Power is joined by past participants who are now instructors at SCYAP, as well as current participants. Together they share the personal impact this program has on their lives. At  the end of the podcast you'll hear part of a speech given by SCYAP's executive director Darrell Lechman (heard last season in Episode 30). Darrell spoke at the opening exhibit and media launch of Urban Canvas held at the SCYAP gallery on November 20, 2015. An impressive crowd including Saskatoon Mayor Don Aitchison, members of the Saskatoon Fire Department, Police Department, and many more.

Recognize, improvise, adapt and thrive.

Those are the key skills which lay the ground work for a phenomenal program in North Battleford called B.E.A.T.S. (Building Expression and Awareness Through Theatre and Sound). Alan Corbeil, a North Battleford social worker, created this program in partnership with the Living Sky School Division and the Prairie North Health Region.  The program targets at-risk youth and teaches them the skills that set  a course for a future full of hope. B.E.A.T.S. uses creativity to tap into each of the participant's gifts, and the result is proof in this episode. Kevin Power is joined by Alan along with Holly (artistic director), and two of the programs success stories - Talia and Sereta.  You'll be truly touched by just how articulate, dynamic and confident these two young girls are, and they both credit the B.E.A.T.S. program for their newly found sense of self.

SaskScapes turns 70 and what better way to celebrate than with the man who has provided the theme music for the podcast since episode one. Saskatchewan born singer/songwriter Jeffery Straker has established himself as one of the most successful (and busiest) artists this province has produced, and has gone on to international acclaim.  Kevin Power joins Jeffery in a conversation that is more fun than two people ought to have in a podcast!  And, it's another "6 degrees" moment as Jeffery reveals his musical lineage which connects him to Beethoven and Chopin. Even Jeffery is part of Taron Cochran's 6-degrees world.

It's another live Story Slam episode! Recorded with an audience at the Meadow Lake library, these stories, told by locals, range from pap smears, to being lost on the side of a mountain, to a crises of translation in a foreign land. Perhaps, most stirring of all the stories is that told by a local doctor. Gavin, originally from South Africa speaks powerfully about his experiences growing up under an apartheid regime, and the lasting effects he still lives with today.
