Welcome to December, everyone and my apologies for not keeping the blog updated in the last two months. As a quick recap of the year in review, we've recently successfully held and taken down the Legacies of War exhibit in Minnesota and the full staging of Refugee Nation with Ova Saopeng, Lidet Viravong and Leilani Chan. I'm currently focusing on gathering oral histories from Lao Minnesotans and will also be doing some side projects in California as well.
I'm also continuing to serve as the community liaison for the Minnesota State Arts Board to assist Minnesotans in accessing the wonderful and exciting opportunities that are available to them. Be sure to check out http://arts.state.mn.us regularly to see upcoming grant deadlines in particular. With the right planning and timing, you can plan anything from festivals to exhibits and readings to keep this a vibrant community.
Stay tuned for a few updates documenting the Fresno community. I think you'll enjoy them! Stay warm out there!
