M:ST News – October 2018

Regarding Steve Roggenbuck

We have cancelled Steve Roggenbuck’s performance.

Twenty four hours ago we became aware of the testimonies of people who have been negatively affected by Steve Roggenbuck. Since then our staff has entered into conversations with our Board Directors, sister organizations, and a survivor. We have also facilitated a conversation between our staff and Roggenbuck with a trained third party mediator present.

We are balancing this conversation with our support for the other biennial artists. We will continue discussions about our role in this issue once the biennial is completed.

Our website, social media, and Facebook events will reflect the cancellation shortly.

If you have questions or concerns, you can reach out via e-mail to biennialcoordinator@mstfestival.org.
