Whether it’s a family attending a Broadway show for the first time at a historic theatre, to a local artist bringing a vacant space to life—we exist to make the arts a part of your everyday life in WeDo™, the West Downtown MPLS Cultural District.
We don’t have to imagine what Hennepin Avenue would be without vibrant, thriving arts and culture—we’ve experienced it:
Since its heyday in the early 1900s, Hennepin has been a home to theater, dance, movies and music, shops and restaurants, and even sports. But since then, generations have experienced an avenue that was uneven, and strikingly lacking as a center of arts and culture.
We are here to change that for the better and for good—to ensure arts and culture on Hennepin return to playing their impactful role for our community.
But this transformation isn’t powered by arts and culture alone—it’s powered because of people like you.
When you give to the Trust, you bring this transformation one step closer to impacting:
- the hundreds of artists bringing visual art to underused spaces;
- the thousands of students and families engaged in our community education programming;
- the hundreds of thousands of patrons who attend shows every year;
- and the millions who experience WeDo every single year.
Your gift, impacting millions of people every year through arts and culture. It’s a transformation made possible because you give.
