Artistic Hope and Healing Our gifts for ministries like River Bend Integrated Community Ministries support programs of healing and reconciliation.

The core of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, is home to many Indigenous people. Beyond the core are communities of non-Indigenous people. Each year, River Bend holds a program called the 10 x 10 project. This is an art project where people living in the core are invited to paint on a 10 x 10 canvas that will be displayed in an art show to all the communities in Saskatoon. Last year, 80 canvases were handed out and 73 returned for the show.

Minister and Coordinator, Jane Jupe says she has grown so much in her interactions with artists. "I have come to realize how important it is in so many ways; it builds community between artists, and helps people heal." Artist Kandis Caplan created a beautiful image from beads of an Indigenous girl without facial features. She explained the importance of sharing her story of sexual assault, saying that it happens to many young Indigenous girls.
