The Twin Cities arts and culture scene is rich and expansive. It exists strongly in small places and in large institutions, in places easily seen and places more hidden. Yet at the same time as we acknowledge the artistic strength of our region, we are aware of the ways in which not everyone benefits from the cultural assets and thriving cultural economy of our region.
Too often our approaches to understanding or addressing these complicated realities take a universal approach rather than a targeted approach to inquiry and analysis. This project was created specifically to hear from working artists of color directly on important questions related to their well being as artists, individuals and community.
