GenerationArt has been developed on the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Indian Reservation by an enrolled member and local psychologist, Dr. Tami Jollie-Trottier. Dr. Jollie-Trottier included the development of a cultural art location as part of her Bush Fellowship program as part of her community leadership and development for her award years 2016-2018. GenerationArt is located in the Belcourt Shopping Mall located in the heart of the Turtle Mt. Reservation of Belcourt, ND.
Creative Expression can be used as healing.
We rely on symbolism, pictures, stories, colors, and patterns to communicate our most inner wants, passions, insecurities, and self. Art is a universal activity that anyone can engage in.
Our ancestors relied on art for ceremonial purposes, basic communication, and to identify clans or tribes. Creating a piece of art that is uniquely yours and sharing it with your tribe, community, and self allow one to feed the soul and nurture the spirit.
GenerationArt offers a place for this healing work to begin and to blossom in the hopes of creating ongoing generations of collaborative community health, healing, and community leadership.
In order to provide an inclusive and creative space for the people of the Turtle Mountains, Generation Art is happy to provide various services. The Art Bar is a daily menu in which customers can come in and create their own masterpiece. We also host workshops hosted by local artists and sponsored by local Tribal programs and businesses. Finally, we are happy to offer Generation Art as a venue for your upcoming event. Click the links below to find out more about these services.
