Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage
ACHF Arts Education
We were the happy recipient of a grant from LRAC in the 2013-14 season for outreach. At that time, we stated that our goals were to: 1. Bring artists into one-on-one situations with people of all ages in our region, 2. Share with residents different musical genres, cultures, dance, songwriting and visual art activities, 3. Make the world a bit smaller and more realistic for youth by having them meet artists from around the world, 4. Help youth and adults understand the rich artistic abilities available by Minnesota artists.Short surveys will demonstrate that more than 75% had a positive experience and learned something new. Written comments will provide additional specific information.
The Red River Area Learning Center teachers observed the connections to their social studies, language arts, and music and culture curriculum. The students found the opportunity to try out the dances themselves as well as the speed at which James could fiddle to be memorable. At Red River Area Learning Center the majority of students attending the performance were students of color. The Concordia audience, also a mix of races, stressed learning more about Mitchif or native cultures in general and not knowing about any connection between fiddle music and any tribe.
