Saskatoon’s Boom Left People Behind
I moved back to my hometown of Saskatoon in the summer of 2016 after eight years away in Alberta. I knew the city had grown in population because I was back and forth visiting family over the years, but I was overwhelmed by its change in landscape and lifestyle. So much, in fact, that I began creating mental lists of all the new things to do in Saskatoon to keep track of it all.
While Saskatchewan was experiencing growth there was a lack of information for people looking to do more than the same-old tourist attractions. I saw a need to provide activities to millennials like me to help create better, meaningful social connections.
Creating New Ways to Connect
Do Sask started at the beginning of 2017 with a goal to fill the site with ideas of things to do in Saskatchewan before the end of January. Generating a whole province worth of ideas is a lot more work than I’d anticipated, so I am asking (pleading!) for contributions to make it truly great! I want to bring Do Sask to all corners of the province, so that members can share their stories and contribute to a collection of ideas.
Think of Do Sask as the easiest way to plan fun things to do in Saskatchewan.
Once you get out there and start doing you won’t miss Netflix.
Do Sask is…
- an info source for the social prairie crowd offering a way to make meaningful relationships with other people that have similar interests.
- providing local businesses and organizations an opportunity to create and share memorable events with our followers.
- offering inspirational blogs, planning tools, and tips to break away for fun things to do in Saskatchewan.
Does YXE is Making Art Approachable
My biggest personal contribution to Do Sask aside from building the idea is Does YXE, an affordable art workshop series that asks members what projects they want to do and then does them. I used to get together with a small group in Alberta to make DIY craft items and had been missing it since moving home. Does YXE aims to create a similar experience on a larger scale for a new group of members. Does YXE projects are short, fun, and easy to get into which is the spirit of Do Sask.
