With so many opportunities to connect and create, the lull of February and March seemed to fly right by. It has been a busy month of activities, events, and conversations!

On March 20, we screened the third film in the ArtCentral Film Festival: Season One (series is co-sponsored by the Northern Black Hills Rotary Club) which was titled “Making Noise: The Story of a Skatepark.” The film by Cecilia Cornejo Sotelo was made in collaboration with the Northfield Skateboard Coalition. It chronicles the lengthy struggle of three generations of skateboarders of Northfield, MN to secure a permanent place for their sport, bearing witness to young people’s resilience and perseverance as it exposes the victories and failures of the civic process in small-town America.
