Listening to Community

Listening to Community

This summer, the Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) will host nine listening sessions throughout the state. We want to understand local needs, and seek community solutions. We invite participants to express themselves and elaborate on key issues and to offer new possibilities for present change, with one foot securely directed towards the future. We wish to know specifically, what areas of focus are the most pressing and what kind of integrative approaches and supports will enable the diverse and divergent voices to be at the center of the discourse. Statewide involvement will shape the development of MHC’s strategic priorities and strategic direction for the next three to five years.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Listening sessions are free of charge, but registration is required.
