Town Hall

April 30
For Artists and Creative Workers
4:00 PM – 5:30 PM

You are invited to a Minnesota Arts Town Hall to discuss the next phase of recovery and stability for the Minnesota arts community.

We know the current pandemic is having enormous impacts on the arts sector. We also know that the arts are absolutely crucial to getting us through this pandemic.
Where do we go from here? What is it that you need and how can we as statewide organizations help? What questions do you have that you can’t get answered? How can we ensure that communities are not further marginalized? How can the arts help at this moment?
These events will have representatives from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the forum of Regional Arts Councils, Springboard for the Arts, Arts Midwest, Minnesota Theater Alliance, Minnesota Presenters Network, City of Minneapolis Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, and Minnesota Citizens for the Arts present to listen, and as time allows bring the community answers during this session or through subsequent communications.
