    The Folk & The Lore: Family Portraits

    Saturday December 1, 2018 / 6 – 8:30 pm

    From the creative mind of Jessi LeMay comes the storytelling and narrative filmmaking project The Folk & the Lore. This multimedia project aims to collect, archive, and tell stories from Reno and throughout the region through photography, short films, and live storytelling events that will be held regularly at the Nevada Museum of Art. Together, we believe that when you know your neighbor’s story, not only do you feel more connected to your community, but those stories become part of your own. Join this event for an evening of storytelling and films based on Family Portraits.

    Doors open at 5pm for social hour and chez louie cash bar. Stories begin at 6pm.

    Stewart Indian School: Home of the Braves

    Monday December 17, 2018 / 5 – 8 pm

    A few miles south of Carson City, Nevada lies a collection of stone buildings that look like they belong to another time. They represent a complex past that changed the course of generations of American Indians as one of the hundreds of Indian boarding schools built across the United States. They also represent a period in American history when the government thought they could change the thoughts, beliefs, and culture of American Indians across the country. The beautiful stone buildings stand as a testament to the countless stories of hardship, resilience, strength and the triumphs of native peoples across the Great Basin. They represent the Stewart Indian School, and this is its story.

    Join us for the premier screening of the documentary film, produced and directed by JoAnne Peden and co-directed by Sam Santoro.  The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring scholars and special guests. 

    Doors open at 5:00 pm, film begins at 6:15 pm.
