Ways to Connect

The Ely Folk School builds community  by providing learning experiences that celebrate the wilderness, heritage, art, history, culture and craft of the people of northern Minnesota.  We check in with Molly Olson from the Ely Folk School on the first Friday of each month and she tips us off on the upcoming events. 

Bemidji, MN was just named Minnesota Monthly's Best MN Town.  One of the many elements of Bemidji that make it unique is its passion for the arts.  The Bemidji Sculpture Walk, a thriving theater and music scene, the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra, the First Friday Arts Walk, and the yearly Art in the Park are just a sampling of wealth of riches in the arts that set Bemidji apart from other comparable towns.
