Brave Art: "Describe yourself in one word." "Brave."

Credit Brave Art. Used with permission.

Five years after the first Brave Art community event, there's more art - and more bravery - than ever in our community.

What started as a way for PAVSA and its Youth Advisory Board to help trafficked youth heal from their experiences has become a full-fledged production.

Tonight's event at AICHO will feature original music and poetry as well as art works. And while the narratives about exploitation and trafficking remain front and center, and it's expanded to regognize that art is a huge part of a lot of healing processes.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
