Saskatchewan residents will step into Step 3 of the government’s reopening plan on Sunday, which means the remaining public health restrictions will be lifted. Even so, many organizations continue to offer online activities. Whether you want to check them out or get outside, here are five things to do in Saskatoon this weekend.
1 – Bid on some artwork
The Saskatchewan Network for Art Collecting is moving and reducing its inventory through an affordable online art auction. There are more than 250 pieces by Saskatchewan, Canadian and international artists to be won. All opening bids start under $ 100. Many items are sold on behalf of charities in Saskatchewan. The auction ends on Saturday with different times depending on the lot. Find out more at sknac.ca.
2 – Check out SPL’s indigenous spotlight
The Saskatoon Public Library will have a virtual chat with Stacey Fayant, who is of Métis, Nehiyaw, Saulteaux, and French descent and is a member of the Peepeekisis First Nation. Fayant is a visual artist and cultural tattoo artist. Her artistic practice focuses on concepts around identity and trauma in relation to colonialism and racism, but also in relation to family, community and healing. The talk is planned for Saturday from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on YouTube and Facebook. Learn more at saskatoonpubliclibrary.ca.
3 – Engage in a conversation with the Remai Modern
As part of the exhibition An Apology, A Pill, A Ritual, A Resistance des Remai Modern, you will talk to Suzanne Kite, one of the featured artists, and Corey Stover in a conversation on Zoom Friday at 7 p.m., as was the case with cousins and Cousins do: for some time about life, death and uranium. The event is free of charge. Register at remaimodern.org.
4 – Create with the colors of summer
Children and their families are invited to participate in Nutrien Wonderhub’s Wonders in the Park: Colors of Summer drop-in program on Saturday and Sunday from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm at Kinsmen Park. Participants can create and explore with the inspiring colors of Saskatchewan during the summer. Learn more at wonderhub.ca.
5 – Hand in your hazardous waste
The City of Saskatoon is hosting another Hazardous Garbage Collection Day on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Civic Operations Center (57 Valley Rd.). The levy is only available to Saskatoon residents from residential real estate. Products eligible to dispense include aerosols, vehicle fluids, batteries, detergents, light bulbs, garden chemicals, and more. Learn more at saskatoon.ca/hazardouswaste.
