Arts and Culture
Minneapolis is a regional center for the arts community. Our rich artistic economy has generated many benefits for our communities. To support this important sector of our economy in the aftermath of COVID and economic upheaval, I would explore options to establish a city based subsidized ticket program to drive tourism, increase consumption, and expand audiences. Artistic and cultural organizations would sign up to become part of a program which reduces the cost for consumers to participate in these activities. This could help drive low income consumers to participate more fully, and become more integrated into our arts community- driving vibrant, diverse, creative cultures.
