Listening Session:
Red Wing

Thursday, June 29, 5 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Red Wing Ignite | 419 Bush Street | Red Wing, MN

The M is hosting a Listening Session in Red Wing, MN to hear your experiences about how creativity fits into your day-to-day life.

  • Is creative expression important to your community? If so, in what ways?
  • Does American art, as you see it in museums and galleries, reflect your life and that of your friends and neighbors
  • What programs would you like to see, or see expanded, for the arts where you live?

The M is working with cultural organizations around the state to hold community discussions tackling questions like those you see above. Through these conversations, we’re hoping to glean information about the changes necessary to make museum spaces like the M truly inviting and open to all who are interested in the arts.

To that end, the M is partnering with the Red Wing Arts Association and Sheldon Theatre to host a discussion where you can  share your experiences. Refreshments will be served. As an added incentive, Sheldon Theatre is giving away 20 free movie tickets to listening session participants to see a movie at the theater just following the discussion.

No prior arts experience is needed to participate in the M’s Listening Sessions. In fact, we encourage anyone with a curiosity in the arts, or who is interested in broadening the reach and impact of regional arts and culture, to join the conversations.

The M’s Listening Sessions are supported, in part, by the taxpayers of Minnesota, thanks to a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
