Creative Sustainability Update
Arts District Work Groups Underway
Eighteen community members have signed up to discuss new strategies and formulate action plans for the Arts District. Last year's public hearing on Creative Sustainability presented by the NE Minneapolis Arts District Board launched four working groups:
Establish a Cultural Art Center for art education, production and exhibition.
Meetings at Art Force. Group leader: Leslie Palmer Ross.
Create Marketing Strategies for the District to attract more affordable housing, businesses and consumers to the area. Group leader: Tom Borrup.
Improve Artistic Quality through education, public recognition, and increased exhibition and performance opportunities.
Establish Zoning Laws and Tax Incentives for affordable live/work spaces for artists and flex spaces for larger short term projects. Group leader: Tom Dunnwald.
It's not too late to join in the discussion to shape the future success of the Arts District! Please contact us for more information.
