ACHF Arts Access ACHF Arts Education ACHF Cultural Heritage
As a result of this program Red Lake Nation College students will have opportunity to see a native driven story and process by New Native Theater when they present for the RLNC and larger community in fall of 2018. For the first time create an original theater production to perform at the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) competition and for their college and larger community. Because of this experience being positive for those students and adult leaders, a permanent theater group will form at the Red Lake Nation College which will prepare a theater production each year for the larger community and for the AIHEC One Act Play competition which travels to US locales. Video interviews will be conducted / transcribed of participants (actors / designers / artists) in which they will be asked a series of questions that target positive /negative experience to quantify in graphic to indicate overall experience ( Likert Scale 1-5 - five being excellent ) and whether they are motivated to be part of a theater group at RLNC in the future. Focus will be on skills, knowledge, and understanding gained as well as overall process. iPads will be tool used to gather.
