About Us

The Saskatchewan Partnership for Arts Research was formally created in the fall of 2012. It was formed by the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskCulture and the University of Regina. It is governed by a board of four representatives, one from each organization, and it is chaired by SPAR Director, Mary Blackstone. The Board is advised by a Community of Understanding drawn from the wider community of stake-holders, and together with the multi-disciplinary research team they determine research questions and priorities, analyze research reports, disseminate research results and consider policy and program implications.
