Arts and Cultural Heritage Grant for Schools

As a result of this program, the students of Red Lake Middle School will benefit by discovering how integrating art into self-expression can help them reach their full potential, be more resilient, and enhance the sense of community (both school community and the greater community). As a result of this program, the citizens of the Red Lake Nation will benefit when the Red Lake Middle School students go into the community with greater hope for the future, respect for community, and ability to create art. We will measure progress by surveying participants, and by analyzing collected artifacts from the residency. Our survey for student participants will ask things such as how each artist inspired them to use words and music, how they feel about their creations, when they would foresee themselves creating art in the future and how they would use it, and to elaborate on what they learned during residency. Artifacts will show students' self-expression and connection to past experiences and hope.
Students were surveyed with questions, talk back topics, and interviews. They were overwhelmingly positive about the residency, and a majority felt good about their creations, felt they understood the role of self-expression, and felt they would create art in the future. Our target audience, the youth of Red Lake MS were greatly impacted by this residency. In addition to the actual work during the residency, students also gained confidence in themselves and built community among students.
