Woven: Gathering at the Intersections – 2nd Presentation by Vera Longtoe Sheehan
A Park for the Arts – This workshop will provide case studies in leveraging the arts to address contemporary issues and build community. These include the creation of a student art exhibit related to the natural and cultural harm of the Emerald ash borer in partnership with the park, a local school, and the Abenaki Artists Association. The park’s Education Fellow will also share how the park worked with members of the local Jewish community to use music and art as a rejection of an incident of antisemitism at the park. Lastly, a park ranger will share recent innovations to public programming at the park that more clearly connects diverse histories, art on display, and contemporary issues. Co-Presented by Newton Rose, Public Engagement Specialist at Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park; Kelly Gadouas, Education Fellow; and Vera Longtoe Sheehan, Abenaki Consultant and Education Fellow.
