THANK YOU! ABOUT THE PROJECT: Last year, APP-MN received a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council for “Naming the Artist Within,” a collaborative project in poetry and visual artmaking with Minneapolis elders, many of whom have dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges. APP-MN teaching poets and guest visual artists are now conducting layered workshops in both art forms at four low-income adult day center partner sites throughout Minneapolis. In each series, participants tell stories and compose group poems which then inform artworks–and vice versa–deepening explored themes and creating new connections. Programming has been in full swing since January, and will run through November 2017. Thanks to supporters and friends like you, we have so far raised over $4200 in matching funds for our grant! We need to raise another $2400 before we have secured all the required matching funds. That’s where your generosity comes in. Your ticket purchases and donations will bring our project to fruition at all four partner sites, cultivating joy and opening avenues for self-expression for Minneapolis elders and helping to amplify their vital presence in the public sphere. THANK YOU FOR BEING AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS WORK!

The kantele is a Finnish folk harp in the zither family in which the player plucks or strums the strings. The kantele was originally used to accompany the singing of epic Finnish poems and stories. When Jarvi picks up a kantele and plays, she is also picking up a set of musical traditions, a history, a mythology, and an art form. In addition to her own compositions, Jarvi is known for her intimate and authentic interpretations of tangos, waltzes, gypsy music, ballads, jazz standards and cabaret songs from around the world. This program is made possible in part by a Community Arts Grant from the City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office. The Global Spotlight Concert Series features prominent artists whose music represents traditions and innovations from around the world.

Time: 10:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. Dear Good Friends of Grace Minnesota, Wishes for the Sky, and Don’t you feel it too? We have a new project to tell you about and a unique offer for you—The Lullaby Experiment. On June 4-5, as part of the overnight Northern Spark festival, we are hosting a sleepover project at the Walker Art Center. This will be a rare chance to experience the Walker in a new way while exploring the affection of lullaby singing and the receiving of that affection as sleepers. The work is created with CITYDESKSTUDIO and amazing local singers, including Leslie Ball, Diane Jarvi, and others. There are a very limited number of spots to experience this work of art fully, and we are reserving a certain number of spaces for you. If you are interested in this experiment, please email me back by this Thursday, May 26. We are looking for people who would like to bring their pajamas and bedding to spend a night letting go of their protected, daytime selves in search or their funny, loving, nighttime selves. We are looking for 30 sleepers and 6 volunteers (who will also sleep). We know sleeping over at the Walker can be out of your comfort zone, but we are prepared to make this a fun and interesting experience. More information about the project can be found at www.graceminnesota.org. As always, our art is participatory, so we hope you can make this work with us. Our many thanks, Marcus & Grace Minnesota
