Grant Funds Free Garvies Point Programs

Arts programs will begin Saturdays in September and run through November.

A grant from the National Endowment for the Arts will fund a series of free arts programs at through November, according to a release from the museum.

The programs will include dance/storytelling, photography, art and poetry. Adults and children over the age of five are invited to register for two Saturdays within the three months the programs are offered.

Native American dance and storytelling will be performed by intertribal song and dance troupe The SilverCloud Singers.

Photographer and portraiture specialist Alex Chan will conduct the nature-inspired photography sessions. 

Lance White Magpie, associate director of the Lakota Sioux Indian Dance Theater and who has appeared in films including Dances With Wolves, will lead the "art of feather working" classes.

Poetry sessions will be led by Danielle Soames, whose work in theater is done with the goal being to "break stereotypes of mixed-ethnicities and mixed cultures by exploring identity in new plays which address conflict within that culture or about that culture," according to her website.

The dates chosen must be one each from two sections - Part A: dance/storytelling and photography, and Part B: art and poetry. 

Sessions run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Saturday. An hour-long lunchbreak will be provided, for which attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch.
