Hennepin Theatre Trust, Southwest Airlines Co. and Project for Public Spaces (PPS) are joining together to create and activate public spaces in the WeDo™ MPLS Cultural District.
The 5 to 10 on Hennepin project will reimagine a five-block stretch of Hennepin Avenue between 5th and 10th streets as a vibrant destination for everyone to enjoy, activating one block at a time beginning August 18 through December 22.
Southwest Airlines’ Heart of the Community program awarded the Trust with a $200,000 grant to bring 5 to 10 on Hennepin to life. PPS, a nonprofit pioneer in the global placemaking movement, will provide technical assistance.
