A Thresh Winter Gathering
Dec 10, 2020 at 8pm Eastern / 6pm Mountain
Thresh is thrilled to invite you to a Winter Fundraiser for First Voices, Thresh's ground-breaking educational partnership with the people of the Indigenous communities of Montana.
The all-digital project presents short performances of ancestral creation stories. Our goal is to inspire children and young adults within the communities to create new stories based on their own experiences.
First Voices is specifically designed to serve Title I reservation schools, focusing on the experiences, history, and social issues of indigenous communities, impacting social-emotional learning outcomes.
Please note: First Voices event link will be valid for 3 days following the event.
The video below offers a taster of our process, as we work on Tsėhésenėstsestȯtse, the Northern Cheyenne story of the Big Dipper.
Scroll through the images below for some more "behind the scenes" images from the project. (You can roll over or tap the images for more information.)
We are counting on your support to continue this valuable work.
ANOTHER WAY TO HELP:
THE RED CURTAIN PROJECT
During the pandemic, Thresh produced fourteen stories for children on a dedicated website www.redcurtainproject.org. Perhaps the highlight was a duet with the legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
Each story was illustrated by a fabulous artist and friend of Thresh.
