Artist Jamie John returns to GLCM to teach us winter storytelling!

Jamie John, who installed our first art piece in the I SEE YOU exhibit is back for an encore! Jamie is a native artist who works to highlight the struggle of native and marginalized people through art. Read more about Jamie and their work here!

The program on Saturday, February 4th will take a lighter tone; focusing on the practice of storytelling. Around the world but especially in the Anishnaabe community, winter is a time for storytelling. Stories can be told aloud, written in books, or drawn on a canvas or hide. Jamie has offered to share some of their stories and teach some of the storytelling ways to us this winter.

Learn about the trickster Nanabozho, and the Northern Lights, and maybe even create a story of your own to record.

This program is open to everyone attending the Museum on Saturday, February 4th and is free with admission to the Museum galleries. Tickets for the two sessions (9:30 – 11:30 AM & 12:00 – 2:00 PM) are on sale here!

This program is part of the Arts in Action series which is supported in part by funds provided by the Michigan Arts & Culture Council (MACC) and the National Endowment for the Arts, and GLCM is so grateful for the help.
