A Handbook for Artists Working in Community
We are delighted to announce this new resource, a practical manual for artists doing work in and with community.
We are committed to continuing to serve artists and communities, providing services, and doing so in a way that supports public health. All public events are postponed, but we've moved programming online and are collecting & sharing resources:

Springboard for the Arts’ mission is to cultivate vibrant communities by connecting artists with the skills, information, and services they need to make a living and a life.
Our work is about creating communities and artists that have a reciprocal relationship, where artists are key contributors to community issues and are visible and valued for the impact they create.
We do this by creating simple, practical solutions and systems to support artists. Those programs support our goal to help create a local culture movement.
Springboard for the Arts is delighted to announce that we have purchased the building and lot at 262 University West in Saint Paul. We are excited to hold this space for community events, expanded offices and programming, and new market opportunities. More to come, all are welcome!Learn more
