Information for new SEEDS artists

Planting SEEDS of Knowledge (SEEDS) program provides grants to schools and other non-profit community groups to hire qualified Native Artists from our roster to present interactive and engaging residencies and performances. Our artists represent the best Native teaching artists in the state and are trained to work in educational settings with teachers and students, integrating curriculum, creativity, and culture. What does a SEEDS artist do in the schools? Take a look at Jennifer in the classroom in this video. Wade Fernandez is also one of the SEEDS artists. See the video about what he teaches in the schools.

SEEDS artists have a healthy personal life, a solid understanding of Native culture, a quality artistic product, and teaching abilities. SEEDS teaching artists know that every time they go into a school, they are planting seeds that can change a child’s life. Artists in program must be 18 years or older, provide 1 letter of recommendation from a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe, pass a background check, and live in Wisconsin. The following forms are for new SEEDS artists information and application to the program:
