Living Heritage: Our values, beliefs and ways of life shape our sense of identity, belonging and place, connecting past, present and future.

Community Resilience

Living Heritage is fundamental to our sense of identity, belonging and place and integral to building community. Resilient communities are those built on cross-cultural understanding and the willingness and ability to negotiate a shared set of values and a shared future.

Heritage Saskatchewan's focus is upon engaged citizenship through community development initiatives and educational programming; and safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) as a part of holistic approaches to community development.

Heritage Saskatchewan's Director of Living Heritage, Kristin Catherwood, is available to visit Saskatchewan communities to deliver ICH workshops and/or provide consultation on using ICH in cultural planning and heritage projects. If you are interested in bringing Kristin to your community, email us and let us know how your community is ready to begin integrating living heritage into its cultural framework. 

Examples of our community work can be found here:
