Tour: Community Cultural Anchors: Neighborhood Foodways

Minneapolis' Phillips Neighborhood has been shaped by waves of immigration, starting with German and Irish, later Swedish and Norwegian and now Mexican, Hmong, Somali and Ojibwe and Dakota nations. This tour offers an opportunity to explore some of the vibrant neighborhood’s foodways and cultural centers that support the ongoing continuity of cultural traditions and expression. Participants will enjoy Nordic, Somali and First Nations' coffee/tea and pastry favorites as they learn about the cultural anchors serving these communities.

Tour: Markets and Communities -- SOLD OUT 8/14/17

Immigrants and refugees in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area have long created and been sustained by marketplaces. Rich with traditional foods, clothing, music, art, and materials for magic, healing, and religion, these are key social spaces, and are vital sources for culturally significant goods. This tour will visit four such markets.

1:00—4:00 pm

Workshop: Experiments in Exhibition: Folk Art and Activism -- CANCELLED 7/18/17
Sponsored by the Folklore and Museums Section

This year's Experiments in Exhibition Workshop, Folk Arts and Activism, has been cancelled due to unforeseen complications with our collaborating community partner in Minneapolis. Please note that AFS members will have ample opportunities to engage with Twin Cities activists and artists through the sessions, keynotes, and un-conference "Re-imagination Lounge" activities that the AFS Cultural Diversity Committee (CDC) has organized during the conference itself. A full list of CDC-sponsored "pop up" activities, panel sessions, and evening talks can be found in the AFS program book and on the AFS website in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for next year's Experiments in Exhibition Workshop in Buffalo, New York, which will be held in collaboration with the Castellani Art Museum.
