Eco3.21 Minogitoon Collective Community Liaison
The Carleton region, although economically challenged, is full of creative, generous, engaged people and organizations with varying resources to support such endeavors including: the Free Range Film Festival, Oshkii Giizhik Singers, County Seat Theater, Agate Music Series, Heart Berry Contemporary Ojibwe Design, Dragon Fire Ceramics, Spectrum Berry Farm, R&R Honey, and Fond du Lac 13 Moons, authors releasing books, musicians producing festivals and concerts, SWCD creating pollinator gardens, food producers working with Community Memorial Hospital to nourish patients, Fond du Lac Tribal College bringing in world-class ecologists, and Jay Cooke State Park hosting candlelight skiing and snowshoeing, to name a few. By listening to creative folks discuss their hopes and dreams, Oldenburg Arts and Cultural Community (OACC) understood what we were supposed to do: figure out how creatives could best work together to all make a good living and, how creatives’ insights can enhance our region’s quality of life, strengthen the economy, and well-being. This was the start of OACC and the underlying concept behind the Minogitoon Collective that “when creatives thrive, their communities prosper.” OACC seeks to leverage the partnership with Ecolibrium3’s VISTA position to propel this concept with greater intensity and intention utilizing the added staff/program capacity to inspire, support, measure/evaluate, and document local engagement across numerous creative mediums to build ‘locally inspired arts activated’ regional community development that is rooted in and fostered from the creative community’s needs and desires. The Minogitoon Collective Community Liaison VISTA will “grow it well” and manage through collaboration and activation this vision of economic development aimed at improving community vibrancy across the Fond du Lac Reservation and Carlton County leading to sustainable, inclusive, equitable and healthy prosperity for all our residents
