Who's in Charge:
A Minnesota Theater Forum on Leadership and Diversity
On May 6-7, 2013, The Minnesota Theater Alliance presented a collective conversation around critical challenges and opportunities in leadership, inclusion, and partnership facing our community. Conference archive coming soon. Did you attend? Please tell us what you thought.
Minnesota Audience Development Exchange
Imagine bringing together the patron lists for Minnesota's many cultural organizations into one database. Now imagine having access to aggregated analysis of that data - demographics, psychographics, attendance patterns. Toss in permission-based list trades between organizations. With funding from the Mardag Foundation and Metropolitan Regional Arts Council for this project, Minnesota now joins 18 other communities who have launched similar initiatives. Deadline for initial sign up has passed, but there will be another opportunity to sign up in June 2013. Learn more ...
New Group Liability Insurance program
We are pleased to announce a partnership with the Nonprofit Insurance Advisors at Minnesota Council of Nonprofits to offer a group insurance policy program for Minnesota performing arts organizations. By covering many theaters under one policy, this program could mean cheaper premiums and greater coverage for many of you. We will be hosting two information meetings where you can learn more about the program:
Thursday, March 28 at 10:00 a.m.
Monday, April 1 at 6:30 p.m.
Made in MN conversation continues, committees forming
On January 21, 2013, we had our second meeting inviting experienced local playwrights, freelance directors and artistic directors interested in starting and shaping a conversation about how our community can collaborate to produce more local new work together. Five project committees are now forming:
- New work festival or month
- "Made in Minnesota" branding, web site
- Minnesota new play database and shared review process
- Rolling premiere / touring collaboration
- Relationship building between producers and playwrights
Save the Date for the Sustainability in Theater Unconference

Compared to 2012’s gathering, the 2013 event at the Southern Theater will be less structured with a greater emphasis on energetic discussions.
