The College of Arts and Science's Office of the Vice-Dean Indigenous, the University of Saskatchewan Art Galleries, and the Indigenous Student Achievement Pathways (ISAP) program are collaborating to host daily beading sessions for Beadin' 2021.

Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to join guests from the Indigenous arts community to share in conversation, creativity, and virtual collaboration. Drop-in beading sessions will be held throughout Indigenous Achievement Week. Experienced, aspiring, and brand-new beaders will be encouraged to share digital images of their works-in-progress, which will be added to a mosaic digitally quilted together over the course of the week and shared back as a reflection of community.
