“Over the course of the ArtsEverywhere Festival, I have learned that the act of grounding ourselves allows us to experience our histories, our current situations which affect all of us, and the possibilities for our collective futures. By being grounded and remaining conscious of the positions of those around us as well as our histories, we can coexist as a community, liberating us to become the most authentic versions of who we are.”
—Peter M. Flannery

“As a student of art history in hopes of being within the industry, the private breakfast with the other Emerging Scholars and all people involved with the festival was one of the most important events. During this breakfast I was able to discuss and ask questions to various presenters and have a more in-depth conversation about various issues, opportunities, and experiences… I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity that being an Emerging Scholar this year has allowed me to participate in.”
—Desiree Scholtz

“At the ‘Braiding Infinity’ panel strong lessons were shared about the importance of patience in communication. The interactions there exemplified that whether we are waiting for someone to receive our message, as Indigenous communities wait on colonial attitudes to change, or whether we are heeding the words of an Elder, patience can be a sustaining solution for frustrating miscommunication.”
—Carey West
