OSAC organizes tours of professional performing artists to communities and schools across Saskatchewan.
OSAC, at the direction of its member Arts Councils, negotiates, schedules, and contracts performances in Arts Council communities around the province. This process allows for efficient dealing with the artist and their representatives and block booking cost savings for the arts councils. Member arts councils discover many of these artists at the annual Saskatchewan Showcase of the Arts or through inclusion in an annual “Price List”.
OSAC members are dedicated volunteers committed to making culture a vital part of community life. They develop and encourage local interest in the arts and ensure a solid future for culture in our province.

Stars for Saskatchewan
Stars for Saskatchewan is a 90 minute performance by high calibre performers from Saskatchewan, Canada and beyond in music, theatre or dance. These performances are often a highlight of the communities’ cultural activities.
Koncerts for Kids
A show designed especially with families or children in mind, these 60 minute performances feature everything from music and puppetry to theatre and dance. These performances are often scheduled in the early evening, weekend afternoons or during school hours to accommodate the younger audiences.
Canada Council has updated the handbook “On the Road” which is a terrific tool for presenters whether you are just starting out or have many years experience. It looks at the many areas that you, as a presenter, must be aware of and ways to avoid those unpleasant surprises.
