We Are Still Here's aim is to uplift Native voices and stories in Minneapolis. This collaborative partnership between the Native American Community Development Institute (NACDI) and Hennepin Theatre Trust will bring large-scale, high profile public artwork created by an emerging network of Native artists to both the Hennepin Theatre District and the American Indian Cultural Corridor.
When the COVID-19 pandemic erased work for artists, Joan Vorderbruggen, director of Hennepin Theatre District Engagement for the Trust, began to understand how difficult these times were for artists. Joan decided to offer free coaching sessions to help artists overcome the barriers they were facing.
The Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on charitable contributions from our community. Thanks to our supporters, we are able to instill confidence and community connection in more than 6,000 students statewide through our arts education programs, elevate and financially support the creative works of local artists and provide meaningful arts and cultural experiences to the more than 600,000 people we bring to the Hennepin Theatre District annually. When you donate to Hennepin Theatre Trust, you are enabling cultural and economic vitality to flourish statewide.
If you have tickets for an event at one of our theatres and cannot attend, please consider donating your tickets to the Spotlight Community Tickets program. Simply contact the Donor Ticket Line at 612.455.9536 or email Donors@HennepinTheatreTrust.org.
