The future of our region and the positives of arts advocacy in our climate are conceptual guidelines. This one night event engages the Glass House as an artistic space in its own right.

Our first panel discussion in the Interchange Series features Indigenous scholar Kate Beane, Director M Museum in Saint Paul, veteran arts professional Rob Sherer, founder of TOA Presents in Northeast Minneapolis, and Chicago-based artist Nate Young, cofounder of the Bindery Projects, an artist-run space previously in the Midway neighborhood.
