A.K.A. Gallery

  • Corporate body

In 1971 Shoestring founders Dorothy Boerma, Lorna Cutting, Ann Newdigate Mills, Jo Shepherd and Betty Warnock "to come to terms with the lack of local exhibition space, the lack of communication with their fellow artists and the public and the lack of sales opportunity" rented two rooms above the Sally Shop on Second Avenue in Saskatoon and started their own gallery. It was operated as a cooperative, with all decisions being made by the group itself. Incorporated as a non-profit society in 1973, the gallery subsisted on grants from the Saskatchewan Arts Board, Canada Council, Department of Culture and Youth, Saskatchewan Sport Trust, etc. as well as membership dues and commissions on artists' sales. It is interesting to note that the gallery did not hire any staff until 1978. By 1981 there were a number of successful commercial galleries in Saskatoon. This led to the original mandate losing its validity and perpetual financial problems. In 1982 the Canada Council provided ongoing financial support for the gallery to be operated as "an alternative artist-run centre". To better reflect this new direction, the name was changed to A.K.A. Gallery.

Alsask Pastoral Charge

  • SCAA-UCCS-0403
  • Corporate body
  • 1925–ca.1960, 2012–2018

Alsask Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, part of Kindersley Presbytery and containing preaching points at Alsask, Lloyd George, Sibbald (Alberta), and Highland Park (Alberta). By the 1930s, Lloyd George was no longer listed in the charge and, ca.1936, Mantario and Craiglands were added (the latter only briefly). As of 1951, Alsask was part of Alsask-Flaxcombe Pastoral Charge, alongside preaching points at Flaxcombe, Hoosier, and Marengo. (Note: Mantario had moved to Eatonia Pastoral Charge by this point.) The two charges had split and been re-established sometime in the mid-1950s. By 1962, Alsask and Flaxcombe were both part of Marengo Pastoral Charge.

On July 1, 2012, Alsask Pastoral Charge was re-established, from what had been Marengo Pastoral Charge. It was dissolved (again), January 1, 2018.
