Arts Midwest believes that creativity has the power to inspire and unite humanity. Based in Minneapolis, we grow, gather, and invest in creative organizations and communities throughout the Upper Midwest. 

Arts Midwest’s portfolio of programs includes performing, visual, and literary arts and leadership development initiatives that provide opportunities for communities large and small to engage with creativity, art, and culture. 

Arts Midwest manages two national initiatives on behalf of the National Endowment for the Arts. Shakespeare in American Communities and NEA Big Read provide learning and networking opportunities to the entire United States.
