Category: Event

This event has been postponed until further notice, out of respect to George Floyd, whose memorial is taking place on Thursday, June 4. Please consider attending our Rural Arts Activism and Anti-Racism Meet Up on Friday, June 5th, which we have organized in response to the anti-racism movement and protests of George Floyd's death. We look forward to working with Holly Doll to host this workshop at a later date. Note: If you previously registered for Amplifying Empathy with Holly Doll, we will send you an email with the new link and call-in information for Friday's event.

Join Holly Doll, President and Founder of Native Artists United, for an open discussion on the importance of enforcing equality, diversity, and inclusion to promote a feeling of belonging within your community. Holly will touch on how Covid-19 has brought to the forefront the inequalities vulnerable communities experience, how you can help tribal communities in crisis, and how to continue to this work post Covid-19.

Native Artists United is a Native American artist cooperative located in Mandan, North Dakota. Along with the anti-racism work being done, NAU also teaches professional development for artists, traditional and modern art classes, and works to promote the Native artist economy. This webinar would be best suited for people looking to work more with their local tribal communities and to grow their empathy and understanding towards vulnerable groups.

This event is part of the Rural Arts Recovery Network - a series of virtual meet ups and workshops exploring the ways rural artists, arts organizations and their communities are responding to the COVID crisis and addressing recovery efforts.
