From 2005 to 2006, the Prairie Roots Project was situated as a downtown Regina studio space to offer multidisciplinary workshops based on hip hop style arts (lyric writing, graffiti style painting, break dancing, music production, the history of hip hop, public speaking and performing) to interested youth. The participating artists were up and coming on the scene and when not giving workshops developed their own high calibre work.
The whole project was a special event, along with a CD release and performance event on May 27, 2005. It helped build a legacy for each participant, having been able to integrate arts and cultural activity into programming. Partners included: Ranch Ehrlo Society, Rainbow Youth Centre, Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina HEAT program, Youth Voice Regina, Integrated Services Program, Sâkêwêwak Artists Collective, and the Cathedral Village Arts Festival.
