Art and education thrive at Gettysburg National Military Park – New Poet invited as NPS Artist in Residence



Invitation to Artist Presentation

National Park Service at Gettysburg National Military Park invites poet and writer Nancy Cook as the NEW park Artist-in-Residence

As the National Park Service strives to connect with new generations, we look forward to leading the arts and interpretation… while always remembering our mission of preserving history.”

— Gettysburg National Military Park Superintendent, Mr. Ed Clark

WASHINGTON DC, MARYLAND, USA, April 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — National Parks Arts Foundation, National Park Service at Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Foundation, announce writer and teacher Nancy Cook’s residency as the Park’s artist-in-residence for April and May of 2017. She will be among the artists this year to represent the LiterAudiArts theme, in which the Park welcomes artists whose work explores the various uses of word, sound, and song. Ms. Cook will reflect on her writing and residency at an Artist Showcase Presentation at the David Wills House in downtown Gettysburg on First Friday, May 5, at 5 p.m.. The event is free, and open to the public.

Ms. Cook holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts through American University, and is an accomplished writer with dozens of publications of fiction and poetry. She has won many accolades for her work, including prizes from the Michigan Poetry Society and the Poetry Matters National Competition.

One of her current projects is a collection of stories, There Are No Ghosts Here, inspired by her residency at a former state mental hospital in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. During her residency at the hospital, Ms. Cook spent many hours at the local historical society combing through news items about the hospital and its residents. Excerpts from those news items became epigraphs to the works of fiction that will comprise the collection.

Ms. Cook intends to spend much of her residency at the Park’s Library and Research Center and at the Adams County Historical Society, where she will look through local news clippings, diaries, and family papers for inspiration. In her own words, “my aim is to transport myself in time and reimagine the place as it was 150 years ago. Writing from that perspective, I’ll emphasize place as character and illuminate human character formed by place-based experience.”

Programs like Gettysburg National Military Park’s artist-in-residence series, in which acclaimed artists find inspiration from the beauty and history of our national parks, and agree to share their ideas with park patrons, represent some of the highest aspirations of the National Park Service. As the park’s superintendent, Ed Clark, explains, “Gettysburg National Military Park can offer the perfect backdrop to provide inspiration for the arts. As the National Park Service strives to connect with new generations, we look forward to leading the arts and interpretation of Gettysburg into the future, while always remembering our mission of preserving history.”

Ms. Cook was chosen in the NEW thematic programming that invites artists of any media and genre to be inspired by the beauty, history and resources of Gettysburg National Military Park. This thematic program title is “LITERAUDIARTS”.

THE DEADLINE FOR ARTISTS TO APPLY FOR MOST 2018 PROGRAMS is April 20th, 2017.
This year is the FIRST YEAR we have introduced program themes to the Artist in Residence programs, in order to diversify the interconnection of the arts with broader demographic inclusion. These programs will alternate through 2017 & 2018. :

LiterAudiArts: NPAF’s most fascinating theme focuses on many and all aspects of speech: words, sounds, song, and music. A few examples of this are POETRY, screenplays, spoken word, environmental recordings, sound art, wall of sound experimentation.

U.S. Military Veterans Artists in Residence: During January, July and November 2017, Gettysburg’s Artists in Residence bring U.S. Veterans to Gettysburg NMP for a unique and historical perspective of those who serve our country.

Arts Revolver: The months of these AiRs are open to any and all artistic media including cross-overs or hybrids with any of the other programmatic themes represented in the other months of Gettysburg Artist Residencies. This is for all artists in all artistic media.

ALEMBIC ARTS (New Media) – this includes many varied and mixed arts media: virtual reality, film, photography, augmented reality, computer imaging, and any and all combinations of these in themselves, or in combination with classic art media.

The National Parks Arts Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion of the National Parks of the U.S. by creating dynamic opportunities for artworks that are based in our natural and historic heritage. This project is supported by the Gettysburg Foundation and other generous benefactors. NPAF National Park projects are supported entirely by donation and generous partnerships.

All NPAF programs are made possible through the philanthropic support of donors ranging from corporate sponsors and small businesses, to art patrons and citizens- lovers of the parks. NPAF is always seeking new partners and donors for its wide-ranging philanthropic programs.

Prescription Drug Take Back Event

Safely dispose of expired medications by attending the 'Prescription Drug Take Back' event on Saturday, April 29th at the Luzerne County Court House.

When you look at the staggering number of lives lost and the impact the opioid epidemic has on our community it is hard to ignore this public health emergency.”

— Tonyehn Verkitus

WILKES-BARRE, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Luzerne County Medical Society is encouraging local citizens to safely dispose of expired medications by attending the 'Prescription Drug Take Back' event on Saturday, April 29th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Luzerne County Court House.

Nearly 78 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. According to the DEA, medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting waters. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high – over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.

“When you look at the staggering number of lives lost and the impact the opioid epidemic has on our community it is hard to ignore this public health emergency,” says Tonyehn Verkitus, the Executive Director of the Luzerne County Medical Society. “As an organization that supports the health of our residents the opioid crisis is a priority for us in 2017.”

Those wishing to dispose of medications may simply 'drive-up' and turn in expired or unused medications safely and conveniently at the court house. The first 100 participants will receive a free ticket to the movies thanks to the generosity of Clear Brook Treatment Centers.

The Luzerne County Medical Society will be on hand to provide resources to help save lives and help addicted individuals and their families get the treatment they need to live long, productive lives.

Vivian Garcia-Tunon of VGT Consulting to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

HR leader to discuss millennial workforce and achieving career satisfaction.

We look at what’s working and what’s not working–the holistic employee experience– and we focus on how to excite them and engage them.”

— Vivian Garcia-Tunon

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — CUTV News Radio announced today it will feature human resources leader and executive performance coach Vivian Garcia-Tunon in a two-part interview with Jim Masters on April 5th at 1pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on April 12th at 1pm EDT.

Uniquely positioned as an older millennial with nearly twenty years of human resources expertise at Fortune 500 companies, Ms. Garcia-Tunon will discuss declining employee engagement. how companies can reengage their workforce, and how employees can best achieve career satisfaction.

“Both employers and employees are struggling,” says Garcia-Tunon. “Studies show that nearly two-thirds of today’s workforce is disengaged and workers are changing jobs more frequently.”

Garcia-Tunon is the founder of VGT Consulting Group, a full-service talent consulting firm dedicated to helping organizations engage their talent and develop more effective leaders.

“I’m a disruptor,” says Garcia-Tunon. “We look at what’s working and what’s not working–the holistic employee experience– and we focus on how to excite them and engage them.”

This issue of engagement has proven especially difficult with millennials. Many company leaders struggle to engage their millennial talent because millennials are different from other workforce generations. VGT works with organizations to better engage millennials and keep them satisfied in their roles.

“Millennials are misunderstood. They’re hungry to learn. They’re hungry to leverage all of their skills and talents. They’re hungry to make an impact with meaningful work,” says Garcia-Tunon. “Organizations struggle with holding their attention. Millennials want more freedom, they want to work smart and they don’t want to be put in a box. Smart leaders understand the future of their organization rely on millennials; and it’s all about creating flexibility, giving them opportunities to learn, and letting them to do what they do best.”

Garcia-Tunon works with executives to help them engage better with their employees and with individual professionals to help them identify more fulfilling career paths.

“Professionals want and expect more. Not only from their employers but of themselves, and their careers,” says Garcia-Tunon. “As an older-millennial with nearly twenty years of corporate human resources experience at Fortune 500 companies, I have seen and felt the disconnect. That’s why I have created a program, Elevation Line, to help professionals reconnect with their careers.”
