Welcome to the Arts Board Equity Engagement Project

Project Overview

The Minnesota State Arts Board (Arts Board) believes that lives across the state are enriched by arts and creative experiences, and works to ensure that all Minnesotans can participate in and benefit from those experiences. Recognizing that barriers or disparities may exist because of geography, disability, age, income, race/ethnicity, or other factors, the board is creating a plan to promote greater equity in the arts.

Your Voice Is Important!

We need your insights to develop an arts equity plan that draws on the experiences and perspectives of all Minnesotans to help communities be more welcoming, healthy, and vibrant. Below is our process and timeline:

  • Round 1 Engagement – through February 2023: Reach out to and gather input from key stakeholders; analyze and produce report by the end of March 
  • Develop Equity Plan – 2023: Use these engagement results and other information to develop and implement an equity plan to help guide the work of the Arts Board
