We believe that our work is multiplied when we partner with other groups in the community and the region. Synergies and creative sparks expand. We have intentionally sought to take our work “on the road” to create art and create community. We have a special focus on bringing quality arts learning and arts creating to populations that do not often receive such blessing.
We have taken our programs “on the road” to senior centers, school autism programs and the Multiple Sclerosis Achievement Center. Where possible, our youth artists partner with those who are physically unable to do certain tasks. We are working with Phillips Neighborhood Clinic (affiliated with the University of Minnesota) to develop culturally appropriate ways to utilize arts to help people heal from trauma. This will include trauma that is often overlooked—for example, the ongoing trauma of undocumented immigrants.
