Creative Minnesota, a consortium of more than a dozen arts and culture nonprofits and funders, is about to conduct the 2019 Creative Minnesota Study. In addition to updates from previous studies about the size and impact of the state’s nonprofit arts and culture organizations, their audiences and artists and creative workers, the team will be working on a new report on the availability of arts education in Minnesota’s schools.
