Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage
ACHF Cultural Heritage
To promote creative place-making efforts in the Twin Towns community. To feature works of indigenous artists, educators, and community-builders with origins in Red River history and culture. To provide an intercultural arts education experience in Breckenridge, Minnesota contributing to improved knowledge, skills, and understanding of the Twin Towns cultural and artistic traditions. To create future possibilities for civic engagement and community livability based on a true sense of place. 1. Exit surveys at the Red River dance event and traditional arts exhibition will measure: specifically 50% or more of survey respondents will agree that they had a positive experience and gained new information or understanding about the history and cultural traditions of Twin Towns area. 2. Additional information about impact will be documented by comments in the exhibition guest book, social network pages, media coverage and key leaders' interview transcript.
Goals were met or exceeded but overall attendance and participation were disappointing. The Wahpeton Indian School did not have enough staffing to bring all the kids over on a Saturday but brought 2 groups of 20 to the exhibit or dance performance. The group home attendance was very good with 32 residents counted along with staff for the developmentally disabled. There were a few assisted living residents among the elderly population and the Valley Lake Boys home also had special invitations along with these other underserved populations. In that regard the attendance had a a good impact.
