artEquity facilitator training 2016
Facilitator Training 2016 is underway, and photos and bios of our 36 participants can be found here
. We welcomed the group on Thursday, September 8th with a reception at Penumbra Theatre
, our generous hosts for this year's training, followed by a smudging ceremony led by facilitator Ty Defoe
and members of the
O'gitchidayquay Council from the Elders Lodge in St. Paul, MN. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were busy days, but we found time for several dance parties, and took in the opening night of Mu Performing Arts'
production of The Two Kids That Blow Shit Up
, directed by Artistic Director Randy Reyes.
