Sum Creation Studio

Now – Sunday

Facebook / Twitter / Instagram

If you’re stuck at home looking for ways to keep the kids entertained, you still have a few days left to get them in on Sum Theatre’s brand new project. With the pandemic and all the physical distancing rules in place, the artists knew that this year’s Theatre in the Park would have to be re-imagined. They decided to get kids in on the action of creating a story that will be performed this summer. Each week, Sum will post themes like bravery, courage, healing and adventure. This week’s themes are Helping and Healing. They want kids to create a painting, story, poem or play responding to the theme, taking a video of their project and sending it in to the creative team. Sum will then use some of those finished pieces in the summer production.

Samara Yung

Thursday

Full disclosure, I’ve been listening to the music of Samara Yung since she was just an emerging artist at our local fair in my hometown of Yorkton. This musician is an absolute powerhouse and she’s just released a brand new single “In Case You Missed Me” . Yung has four albums to date and has shared the stage with Emmerson Drive, Aaron Pritchett and Jess Moskaluke, just to name a few. She’s bringing her new songs to a virtual show on Facebook Thursday night.

Neil Richards Art Auction

Sunday Now – Sun.

Bidding Owl

It’s a lasting legacy of love. Neil Richards was a gay activist and leader in Saskatoon’s LGBTQ community since the early 1970s. He passed away in 2018. Richards worked in the University of Saskatchewan’s Archives and Special Collections and over the years created one of the country’s largest LGBT archives. The collection included many rare books, magazines, posters and pictures. OUT Saskatoon was gifted the collection after Richards death and the organization will be auctioning off 27 pieces over the next week to support programming and services.
