Marcie Rendon brings together three Anishinaabe artists to perform contemporary artistic works in a showcase of the collective resilience of who we are as a people. Jada Brown sings her heart out. Andrea Fairbanks dances and moves about the lifeforce of our language over attempts to destroy us. Sir Curtis Kirby the III brings his directing skills along with the Ikidowin Youth Theater Ensemble.
Minnesota is a haven for artists – some of them well-known, others we still need to meet. That’s why TPT launched ART IS…, a multi-media and events series aimed at bringing visibility to emerging and established artists in new ways. Watch their stories here, get inspired to make something yourself and snag some tickets to these live events.
