Education & Outreach

Along with participating in curating and exhibiting his work, Jeremy engages with community learning through the arts. In the past, partnerships have been made at East End schools, the Parrish Art Museum, Libraries, and other institutions.

Programs include several topics and themes related to Native Americans, from local history to traditional storytelling, including;

  • A place-based approach to local indigenous history
  • New perspectives through critical indigenous interpretations
  • Exploring central themes that bridge American and Native American history, government, literature, art, music, and related humanity subjects

Workshops spanned grade 5 – 12, college level classes, and adult learners who are art hobbyists and supporters of the arts.
