We're happy to announce that we received two grants recently from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council!
Our Art Project Grant funding will be used this year to bring back Let's See What You See! The premise of this exhibit is to host an event that is engaging to people from all corners of the community and that encourages them to think creatively about a given prompt. Artistically speaking, this exhibit focuses primarily on the participant’s ability to capture a concept or idea, regardless the technology used.
For details on how to submit, check out our Call for Entries: Let's See What You See Cellphone Photo Exhibit event page.
Meanwhile, our Arts Learning Grant funding will go to fund a series of workshops for native youth focused on arts through the culinary application. Participants will learn about what makes a food Wild and/or Indigenous, why these foods are important, how seasons determine what foods are available locally; they will participate in preparation and taste-testing of ingredients in a Wild and Indigenous Foods Lab type of setting, and craft a recipe using wild-harvested plants and/or locally sourced fruits and vegetables. We'll be unveiling all of our youth's creations this summer
