Our Values: Creativity, Collaboration, Inclusiveness, Effectiveness.
The purpose of our events and exhibitions is to provoke discussion, reflection and action and to nurture an emphatic, socially-aware and action-oriented community. ACW will host a two-week event with an exhibition, performances and workshops around the theme of See. Say. DO from Oct. 4-14, 2018.
Twenty established and emerging artists and their topic expert team members are creating social and environmental justice works, transforming the cutting-edge art space Squirrel Haus Arts in South Minneapolis into an inviting and magical universe which draws the visitor into a thought provoking, interactive journey with the intent of inspiring action in our community.
The team will learn from all the “topic experts ” as they build the art object and workshops. Topics include Recovery, Gender/Sexual Equality, Disability, Water Quality,Wellness, CTSD, Compassionate Conversations and Labor/Union issues.. An example of topic expert team mates who will work with the Recovery artist, Barbara Bridges, are Marya Hornbaucher, an author in recovery from addiction and David Swarthout, a psychotherapist specializing in addiction. Marya has already influenced my thinking. She indicated when people ask her if she is “in recovery” she responds with strength, contentment, and peace of mind “Today, I’m alright.” . The team will learn from all the “voices” as they build the art object and workshops. Read More What is an Authentic/Expert Topic Voice?

Support a Team. Become a Team Member!
Do you have a specific social topic you would like to sponsor? The artist/authentic voice teams need about $1,000.00 for both of them to research, travel, buy art and educational supplies/materials. Each artist has selected an authentic voice (or 2). We might also call these integral team mates a “primary source voice.” ALL of the team members learn from the other team members. You will become a member of the team. We value your voice.

Found In Our Waters
Our concern for the quality of our water should be a national and international dialogue. The Maine shrimp disappeared in 2013. The clam and oyster shells are 40% thinner than a decade ago. There is a toxic alert on the salmon caught in Lake Superior. The future water concerns are here today.
We seek collaborators to stage exhibitions, panel discussions, student workshops, and school visits. It is our belief that social practice art invites the participants to consider serious social issues while experiencing the joy of collaborative creating. Location on Route One to be selected by participants. Route One Project
