The City of Minneapolis Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy has approved funding for 15 artists-led teams to support projects that offer creative healing and support for Minneapolis communities that have been directly affected and affected by the trauma and stress of the past year.
The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy mobilizes one-time City dollars in 2021. This money is used to fund the new Cultural Districts and to repurpose resources from Kresge Foundation.

The Creative Response Fund is a program of The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy at the City of Minneapolis.

The City of Minneapolis Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy provides funding, manages the artist selection process, and provides support for projects. The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy supports artist-entrepreneurs, creative businesses and arts and culture nonprofits to ensure the growth and sustainability of cultural expression and creativity throughout the City of Minneapolis.
