CARFAC SASK represents the needs of visual artists through active and responsive advocacy to various levels of government and to other agencies whose activities affect artists. CARFAC SASK maintains relationships with the Saskatchewan Arts Board and SaskCulture, and is an active member of the Canadian Conference of the Arts, the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance, and the Saskatchewan Cultural Industries Development Council.

CARFAC SASK members receive our newsletter once every two months, either by mail or email (based on preference). The newsletter offers articles on national and regional issues and events, CARFAC SASK programming, and artist profiles. The newsletter also includes calls for submission, upcoming cultural events and exhibitions, educational and professional opportunities, artist residencies, and more.
Our monthly e-bulletins offer time-sensitive items that may not be reported in the newsletter, including upcoming events and deadlines.
Our offices in Regina and Saskatoon offer resource centres, which contain a vast selection of books and current art magazines relevant to artists. These may be borrowed by CARFAC SASK members.
CARFAC SASK offices can provide computer and internet access to members. Members may also use Lynda.com, an online resource for software training and tutorials.
