HOMELAND – A New Project in Placemaking
Date: May 21st, 9am – 5pm.
Homeland: Native Artists Create Together on the Ave
Partnership with Springboard for the Arts
Native artists of all backgrounds with ties to Homelands in or near the Twin Cities – including storytellers, beaders, quiltmakers, craftspeople, makers, performers, muralists – All My Relations Arts, Native American Community Development Institute and Springboard for the Arts invite you to join the creative placemaking movement! Use your talents to create collaborative work sharing our stories of homeland here in the cities and along the American Indian Cultural Corridor in Minneapolis.
We kick off Homeland with a workshop on Saturday May 21st, 9-5pm at All My Relations Arts gallery. The workshop will include: an introduction to placemaking; sharing of our community assets, priorities and opportunities; and group brainstorming and selection of project ideas to develop and implement. Following this initial workshop, project teams will together share $20,000 to implement their collaborations from mid-summer to fall along Franklin Avenue with a public celebration on August 17 at Open Streets.
Artists who are unable to attend the first workshop will have opportunities to join the project groups – please contact organizers below to let us know.
Homeland is supported by David and Rosemary Good
