Creative City Road Map

Traveling exhibit and “loop back” events

Join us in October and early November as the Creative City Road Map exhibit travels to four locations targeted to reach underserved communities throughout Minneapolis. Each location will host the exhibit for one week. In addition, there will be public “loop back” events organized by the Artist Engagement Teams at most of these locations during the exhibition period. “Loop back” events include performances, conversation circles, and opportunities to provide feedback on the draft Road Map document. Check back here for event details.
