“I intend to put communities in control of their stories and in positions to feel safe so we can discuss our traumas and find ways to heal together.” – Ne-Dah-Ness Rose Greene

Through powerful photographic portraits, Greene raises awareness around Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives (MMIR). Each subject has a story that gives voice to those forced forever to be silent. “Through art, we heal, seek hope, and stand in solidarity.”

What does May Festival support?

*Local Artisans
*Our connections with the Earth
*The ministries of People's Congregational Church (peruse our website to learn more about us)

Our PCC Vision: An inclusive community, celebrating God's unconditional love ...
Our congregation's involvement in justice and outreach within the wider community:

We join and support efforts to improve the lives of residents in the local area through Valley Outreach, Community Thread, Connect Center and Homeless Strategy and Advocacy Team (HSAT) of Washington County. We hosted a February 2022 Covid-19 vaccine clinic administered by Washington County Public Health.
At People's Park, we maintain a labyrinth and a community garden for community enjoyment. We participate in a major environmental restoration effort with the Washington County Conservation District and Middle St. Croix Watershed, redeveloping two acres as native prairie to attract pollinators, wildlife, native plants and flowers.
Our Justice and Outreach Team encourages our members to engage in three focus areas: environmental/climate justice, identity justice (antiracism*, LGBTQ+ inclusion), and economic justice (income, home and food security). In spring 2021, we formed an Antiracism Collective to begin an inaugural year of rigorous antiracism education.

The “Ish-y” part is this: What you create will be tree-ish, branch-ish, landscape-ish, sunrise-ish, sunset-ish…you get the idea.

Inspiration for each class will vary each week. We are not going for detail here but tapping into our own intuitive self-expression by using simple strokes, blending and shading, creating an idea of what we see. In simple terms – I am providing the space, supplies and guidance in which you can explore and connect to your inner artist.

Rules of the class:

No judgements, no competition, and no expectations.

Barbie (Babs) Luepke will serve as your Art Guide.

Have you cracked open a cli-fi book or two since 2016 when ArtReach originally hosted the Cli-Fi Book Club as part of the NEA Big Read? (It's okay if you didn't!) Whether you are an avid cli-fi reader or this is your first book, you are welcome to join us to fully imagine the ways that life can be altered by climate change using contemporary fiction as our guide.

Our monthly book discussions will begin with Parable of the Sower, an acclaimed post-apocalyptic novel by legendary, award winning author Octavia E. Butler.

When global climate change and economic crises lead to social chaos in the early 2020s, California becomes full or dangers, from pervasive water shortage to masses of vagabonds who will do anything to live to see another day.

The Cli-Fi Book Club will meet on the ArtReach lawn (weather permitting) so be sure to bring a chair or blanket.

The “Ish-y” part is this: What you create will be tree-ish, branch-ish, landscape-ish, sunrise-ish, sunset-ish…you get the idea.

Inspiration for each class will vary each week. We are not going for detail here but tapping into our own intuitive self-expression by using simple strokes, blending and shading, creating an idea of what we see. In simple terms – I am providing the space, supplies and guidance in which you can explore and connect to your inner artist.

Rules of the class:

No judgements, no competition, and no expectations.

Barbie (Babs) Luepke will serve as your Art Guide.

This class will be held on occasional Wednesdays.

Have you cracked open a cli-fi book or two since 2016 when ArtReach originally hosted the Cli-Fi Book Club as part of the NEA Big Read? (It's okay if you didn't!) Whether you are an avid cli-fi reader or this is your first book, you are welcome to join us to fully imagine the ways that life can be altered by climate change using contemporary fiction as our guide.

Our monthly book discussions will begin with Parable of the Sower, an acclaimed post-apocalyptic novel by legendary, award winning author Octavia E. Butler.

When global climate change and economic crises lead to social chaos in the early 2020s, California becomes full or dangers, from pervasive water shortage to masses of vagabonds who will do anything to live to see another day.

The Cli-Fi Book Club will meet on the ArtReach lawn (weather permitting) so be sure to bring a chair or blanket.
