Woman Sketching


The SK Theatre Design Festival was created by an ad hoc group of Saskatchewan theatre designers working in the areas of sound, lighting, costume, sets, projections, and props.

The SK Theatre Design Festival group is dedicated to holding a design festival that provides opportunities for emerging and established theatre designers to explore the environment of stories on stage.

The group has been very fortunate to receive funding and partnership support from several key organizations: SK-Arts, SaskLotteries, SATP, On the Boards Staging, the Globe Theatre, Persephone Theatre, and the University of Saskatchewan.


Festival Goals:

  • to provide an opportunity for theatre design artists to create a design and share it with the public

  • to provide an opportunity for audiences to have a cathartic theatre experience through a live theatre presentation

  • to provide opportunities for theatre designers and the public to talk and learn about theatre design
