In the Round 2024

In The Round: Artistry, Activism, & Presence of Native Creatives

In The Round: a speaker series featuring Native American Creatives seeks to render visible—to the BGSU and local communities—the artistry, activism, and presence of contemporary Native American artists. This series is an extension of the recently-developed BGSU Land Acknowledgment, which provides a foundation upon which the university can build purposeful and sustained practices that seek to decolonize our institution.

In The Round features Native American creatives who work in the areas of the arts here at BGSU: Fine Art, Graphic Design, Music, Creative Writing, Film, and Theatre. The series offers opportunities to enrich the learning, experiences, and perspectives of all members of our campus and local communities. By engaging contemporary Indigenous and Native American Artists, this series challenges erroneous and harmful stereotypes that continue to permeate American society today. Exposure to the artists’ works and techniques through which they share their experiences, worldviews, and reactions to the cultural and historical moment in which we all find ourselves facilitates growth and dynamic learning opportunities for students, staff, and faculty.

View our In The Round speakers for 2024.
