Autumn Leaves and Learning – A PotPourri

Autumn is a magnificent season – not just because of the brilliant colors and cooler days but because the energy of creative and generous people and organizations are at peak! Ideas abound. Here’s a smattering of options – just to give an idea of the breadth of programs that pop up everywhere during this robust learning season:

  • Reframe Minnesota: Art Beyond a Single Story – Do not miss the chance to visit this unique show at All My Relations Gallery. The exhibit welcomes visitors to engage in a serious discussion of the controversy surrounding the art that has been and what art should be at the State Capitol.   Not to be missed.   Free and open through September 16. http://www.allmyrelationsarts.com/portfolio_page/reframe-minnesota/ 
  • The War on Science – Shawn Otto. Thursday, September 8, 7:00-8:00 p.m. Another learning opportunity sponsored by Eat My Words bookstore (http://www.eatmywordsbooks.com), the Northeast Minneapolis idea incubator. Otto is a science advocate, writer, teacher and author of The War on Science in which he investigates the “historical, social, philosophical, political and emotional reasons for why and how evidence-based politics are in decline and authoritarian politics are once again on the rise.” Happily, he also offers a vision, an argument and compelling solutions to “bring us to our collective senses before it’s too late.”
  • Inclusivity & Indie Authors: The Case for Community-based Publishing is another unique offering, this sponsored by the Master of Library & Information Science Program at St. Catherine University. Speakers are author and educator Dr. Zetta Elliott and MLIS faculty member Dr. Sarah Park Dahlen. The program is Tuesday, September 13, 7:00 p.m. at SCU. Dr. Elliot is a black feminist who advocates for a model of community-based publishing that uses print-on-demand technology to create a more diverse and inclusive literary world. This is the first in a series of programs featuring Dr. Elliott – additional programs posted on FB – all free and open. .https://www.facebook.com/events/1576818495957311/
  • The American Craft Council Library Salon Series is also unique; the series features a program of four free public presentations exploring craft, making, and art.   The series starts September 14 with a program on Pottery, Pollinators, and Public Engagement featuring Anna Metcalf and Kristy Lynn Allen in a conversation about community and environmental sustainability. The programs are timely and the ACC Library is one the unexplored treasures of Northeast Minneapolis. https://craftcouncil.org/event/pottery-pollinators-and-public-engagement-anna-metcalfe-and-kristy-lynn-allen
  • Also in Northeast, the Friends of the Northeast Minneapolis Library and the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association will again sponsor Salon Nordeast. Herself is a panel discussion about writing and publishing in a male-centric industry. Featured authors include Sarah Chandler, Stephanie Wilbur Ash, Heather Beatty and Wendy Webb in a panel presentation moderated by Sarah Stonich. It’s Saturday, September 18, beginning at 2:00 p.m. at the Solar Arts Building, 711 NE 15th $5 suggested donation to the Friends. https://www.facebook.com/events/1466612610314045/
  • More programming from St Paul’s East Side Freedom Library includes a special discussion of Sports and Resistance in the age of Black Lives Matter. Featured speakers are sports writer Dave Zirin and St. Paul native Royce White who left pro basketball to stand up for justice and advocate for mental wellness. It’s 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 21 at ESFL. https://www.facebook.com/events/299387433754138/

You get the idea – Creative people and organizations are sharing their experience and resources on an irresistible range of topics and ideas!   The intent is to rouse your interest – you’ll find countless other topics, venues, and options in every community, sponsored by myriad organizations of every stripe.

Autumn really is the best season to get the learning juices flowing!!!
