Region 2 Arts Council awards Cultural Traditions in the Arts Grants

On January 22, 2018 the Region 2 Arts Council Board of Directors awarded $6,000 through their Cultural Traditions in the Arts Grant Program, designed to support high-quality arts programming for Minnesotans of all ages to access diverse cultural traditions through the arts.

The grant recipients included:

Headwaters Music & Arts was awarded $3,000 to hold a five-day fiddle camp in June 2018, with a special focus on the music of participants’ North American heritage and the Scottish/English/Irish/Appalachian roots of folk and Bluegrass music, including a special introduction to contra dancing.

Red Lake Nation College received $3,000 to host an interactive activity in which the public, Ojibwe language educators, and local metal sculpture artists will collaborate to create sculptures of two clans, Bear and Kingfisher, during the first World Anishinaabe Language Summit in the summer of 2018.

These funds are made available through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund passed by Minnesota voters on November 4, 2008.
