The world has changed drastically since we gathered for the Rural Arts and Culture Summit last October, and we know many rural artists and arts organizations need support and connection right now.

To help you stay connected to your rural arts colleagues, we are launching a Rural Arts Recovery Network – a series of virtual meet ups and workshops exploring the ways rural artists, arts organizations, and their communities are responding to the COVID crisis and addressing recovery efforts.

Upcoming Events:

Amplifying Empathy

Holly Doll, president and founder of Native Artists United

Thursday, June 4th, 1:00 – 2:30pm

Join us for an open discussion on the importance of enforcing equality, diversity, and inclusion to promote a feeling of belonging within your community right now. Holly will touch on how Covid-19 has brought to the forefront the inequalities vulnerable communities experience, how you can help tribal communities in crisis, and how to continue to do this work post Covid-19.

Native Artists United is a Native American artist cooperative located in Mandan, North Dakota. Along with the anti-racism work being done, NAU also teaches professional development for artists, traditional and modern art classes, and works to promote the Native artist economy.This webinar would be best suited for people looking to work more with their local tribal communities and to grow their empathy and understanding towards vulnerable groups.
