Information for new SEEDS artists

Planting Seeds of Knowledge (SEEDS) program provides grants to schools and other 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 class room in this video. Wade Fernandez is also one of the SEEDS artists. See the video about what he teaches in the schools.

Becoming a SEEDS artist requirements include: you to 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, able to pass a background check, and living in Wisconsin. The following forms are for new SEEDS artists information and application to the program:
