Her organization, Springboard for the Arts, is an economic and community development organization for artists and by

artists, based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Springboard for the Arts’ mission is to cultivate vibrant communities by connecting

artists with the skills, information, and services they need to make a living and a life. Their work is about creating

communities and artists that have a reciprocal relationship, where artists are key contributors to community issues and

are visible and valued for the impact they create. They do this work by creating simple, practical solutions and systems

to support artists. Those programs support their goal to help create a local culture movement.
