Peter-Haakon-Thompson-Ready-Go-Flags

Artists are connecting with individuals, neighborhoods, nonprofits, and local businesses in new and creative ways thanks to projects like Springboard for the Arts’ Ready Go and Sam Gould’s Beyond Repair. Offering the public a chance to participate in the act of making, Ready Go and Beyond Repair provide exciting tools to help local artistic and literary communities engage with new audiences. Join Springboard’s community development coordinator, Peter Haakon Thompson, and Beyond Repair’s Sam Gould as they discuss their respective programs and the many ways artists are interacting with their neighbors in the Twin Cities.

The Library Salon Series is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
