As Minnesota “welcomes” an early spring, we’ve been busy bees working on supporting and promoting the Arts District and the businesses therein. Check out below for some news and upcoming events!
District Committee Meeting
On Tuesday March 20th at 5:30pm the Arts District committee will be meeting. We meet roughly every other month to touch base on current projects and set our goals for the months and years ahead. If you’d like to get more involved or see what we do, please join us!
We meet at Altered Esthetics Gallery – 1224 Quincy Street NE.
Arts District Forum
The first of several arts district forums will be Thursday April 12, 2012 at Chowgirl’s Parlor, 6:00pm. Join us as we discuss the current state of the Arts District, followed by a panel discussion on leveraging the district for your arts-friendly business. The forum discussion will features notes from Josh Blanc and Layl McDill, who opened a satellite store downtown for a successful holiday season.
The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District & the Arts District Committee is an outcome of the Arts Action Plan.
Currently managed by the Northeast Community Development Corporation, the Arts District Committee is comprised of NEMAA staff, Northeast CDC staff and interested community members. Additional support has been provided by Clay Squared to Infinity, Altered Esthetics, and the Northeast Chamber of Commerce.
