This June at the Washburn Cultural Center, come view artwork and poetry from two projects celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore (1970–2020). A is for Apostle Islands features original visual art and poetry for the ABCs from the forthcoming book. Island Intersections contains trios of science summaries and interpretations or responses through visual art and poetry emerging from presentations at the Apostle Islands 50th Anniversary Resource Stewardship Symposium. Dozens of artists and poets have collaborated and contributed to this exhibition, organized by Lucy Tyrrell.
A is for Apostle Islands and Island Intersections both run from June 2–30 in our galleries, and a virtual exhibition is available here. Our art galleries, antiques and collectibles shop, and Vinyl Vault are currently open daily from 12–5pm on weekdays and 12–4pm on weekends!
Child trauma can be hard to identify and understand. The symptoms can look like so many other physical and mental health issues. A child who has experienced trauma may develop behaviors making it hard to form positive relationships with others. He or she may also continue the cycle of violence and abuse. When the "root cause" of the issue is not recognized and treated, families and workers can feel worn out.
Fortunately, trauma-informed caregiving and treatment can help children recover from their difficult childhood experiences. It helps them learn new ways of thinking about themselves and the world around them.
In this workshop, through activities and videos, information about trauma and its effects on the brains and bodies of children is shared with parents, caregivers, community members and child-serving professionals. This information helps adults build positive relationships with children.
