What an amazing year it's been for this important work of connecting people to place through art and education. Just look at the numbers:

*1,150 students worked with 10 Native artists in Confluence in the ClassrooM

*450 audience members joined 6 Confluence Story Gatherings

*150 volunteers scrubbed, swept and mulched at Confluence artworks

*90 curious learners went on 6 Native Plant Walks

*12 native elders and leaders shared their stories on video for future generations

It's also a pivotal time to be doing this work. This year, the State of Oregon joined Washington in taking the major step of requiring Native education in schools. Which means the demand for the Native educators Confluence works with is higher than ever.more >
