ACHF Cultural Heritage
The Somali Artifact and Cultural Museum will present exhibitions of traditional Somali artworks in 10 community institutions in the Twin Cities. Each event will offer lectures and an exhibition of traditional art for 30-200 people.Success of this project will be measured by increasing demand for the Mobile Culture Show, in terms of additional locations making requests for future exhibitions. In addition, several of the Somali Museum’s advisors will evaluate the educational and artistic quality of the events; these advisors include Bob Stacke, Augsburg College; Scott Pollock, American Swedish Institute; and Said Salah Ahmed and Abshir Isse, both members of the Somali Museum Board who represent respected leadership in Somali culture.
The Somali Museum presented the Mobile Culture Show at 16 events around the Twin Cities, and engaged more than 1,420 people with Somali traditional culture and art. Of these attendees, over 1,015 were Somali-Americans. Youth who had never accessed Somali traditional culture before viewed and learned about traditional artifacts and artworks.
