Collaboration Station

Arts and Theatre for Kids Since 2020

Engaging Kids Through Art

Since 2020, the Collaboration Station has been a hit at the Saskatoon Fringe Festival. Focused on engaging kids in theatre and arts, Collaboration Station operates as a free drop-in program where children design and build their own puppets under the guidance of local theatre and puppeteer professionals. 

In Spring 2022, the Collaboration Station expanded to include the Collaboration Station+! This program, supported by the Community Initiatives Fund, consisted of both a weekly class (for kids ages 8 to 10 who will work with professional theatre artist and arts educator, Angela Christie to create their own show) and a 3-day costume-specific workshop (for kids ages 8 to 12 who will get to learn about and experiment in costume design)!

At the 2023 Saskatoon Fringe, The Collaboration Station will operate as a free drop-in program where children (aimed at ages five to 12) can design and build their own costume pieces under the guidance of local theatre professionals. After creating their pieces, participants will have an opportunity to showcase their creations to their friends and family!

Coming Soon:

Collaboration Station+: On Tour!

Collaboration Station+: On Tour brings professional theatre artists together with communities and community groups across Saskatoon to create a Play in a Day – a full-day theatre-making extravaganza where participants will spend a day rehearsing, creating, and finally performing a short play for their friends and family.

The project will take place throughout March and April, with multiple days of theatre-making occurring over the two months (approximately once a week). Each week, a new area of the city will be selected, or a community group visited, and participants will be invited to join the Collaboration Station+ team in their area of town for the day.

Stay tuned for more information!
