Minnesota Demographics are Changing
Wednesday, March 25 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 amNo cost to participate
Have you noticed changes in your community? Do the people coming to your art events look different now than in the past? How can you plan for the future to make your arts programming serve those living in the 7-county metro area? This presentation is intended to help you better understand key demographic, economic, and social trends, and how these trends may impact your work and transform your communities.
