How were the Sask artists for Come Together selected?

A joint submission intake was opened to receive applications from all participating provinces.

A jury comprised of the participating presenters curated a shortlist of the top applicants from each province. The shortlist for Sask was then sent to a Toronto-based industry jury to select the 2 artists who would attend from Saskatchewan. SaskMusic is sharing the overall costs of presenting this event with our partners.

Thank you to provincial and federal partners:
