Orange Shirt Day

To discourage indigenous children from identifying with their tribal ancestry, many were sent to government boarding schools until as late as 1978. Dartmouth students honored their experience on Sept. 30 by wearing orange shirts. Their motto: "Every Child Matters."

Protecting the Vote

In 2020 WRIF (White River Indie Films) presented a special series on Race & Elections addressing the threat to democracy posed by the dismantling of the Voting Rights Act and voter suppression.

Movement in Stillness, Stillness in Movement - Carla Kimball performance

Stillness in Movement

Missed the October media arts exhibit at JAM? View the opening night performance here. Carla Kimball, a long-time photographer and dancer, began to explore the dimension video could bring to her work in 2020. Recently, her exploration of stillness and movement has led her to project images and films on floating panels of fabric.

Upper Valley Arts & Culture to podcast, Michelle Rogge and Julius Turner premiered Intersections, the Book JAM created Shelf Help, and Dismas House Hartford kicked off Going the Dismas. Give a listen and find inspiration to start your own!
