Let’s Prove It.
Be a part of Creative Minnesota’s Artists and Creative Worker’s Study.
Creative Minnesota is starting a new economic impact study of individual artists and creative workers. Over 170 nonprofit and foundation partners, including Region Five Development Commission, have joined together with this project to prove the economic power of artists. This study will be used to generate public and private support, and to advocate for more services, for artists and creative workers. The result will be more attention, respect and funding for artists and their efforts to make their art and their living in Minnesota.
Make sure that YOU are counted.
