Both our offices in Lowertown Saint Paul and Fergus Falls house Resource Centers, offering individual artists and small organizations access to a full array of equipment, tools, and services in an informal, self-directed environment. Stop by to scan some slides, research travel grants, learn to use Drupal, read up on resumes, or print some flyers.

Resource Center Pop-Ups!

We're taking our Resource Center on the road in 2018! From our Lowertown St. Paul office, we are bringing our Resource Center to a neighborhood community center near you.
