DATE & TIME: Tuesday, October 26 (8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.)

Professional Development on Location Series: Connect and Respond to the Visual/Media Arts of the Dakota and Ojibwe People is a series of professional learning opportunities hosted by Perpich Center’s Professional Development and Resource programs.
This workshop is organized into three parts:
- Part 1: Visit Reconciliation Park with a guest presenter. This park, near the site of the 1862 hanging of 38 Dakota men, is dedicated to promoting healing between Dakota and non-Dakota peoples.
- Part 2: Document the history of the site, alongside exploration and documentation of the public artwork in and near Reconciliation Park to include the exterior of the library and the Ardent Mills silos by Guido van Helten.
- Part 3: Experience K-12 lessons and resources available from Perpich Center for teaching visual/media arts of Dakota and Ojibwe People, and have time sketching a lesson or unit you can prepare for use with your students.
- Dress for the weather. We will be outside at Reconciliation Park for about an hour and across the street at the Arden Mills silos for another 30-45 minutes.
- Please bring a laptop/tablet and something to take photos with for the silos portion of the day.
- About 45 minutes is planned for lunch on your own. There is no food allowed in the service cooperative therefore plan to bring a lunch to eat outside or perhaps visit a nearby fast food restaurant.
- This workshop is facilitated by Jeremy Holien, Visual/Media Arts Education Specialist at Perpich Center.
- Seven (7) CEUs are provided and there is no cost to participate.
*Due to COVID restrictions, this workshop is limited to 18 people. A waitlist will be available after the event is full. Masks are required when inside the service cooperative.
