Vision & Values
WE ENVISION THE YOUTH OF NORTH MINNEAPOLIS ENTERING THE WORKFORCE AS DYNAMIC INNOVATORS AND PROBLEM-SOLVERS.
We believe the integrative problem-solving abilities learned through the hands-on creative process of moving from idea, to production, to market are the skills young people need to succeed in school, in work, and in life. We believe sustained participation in community-focused creative expression powerfully advances the development of individuals, communities, and places.
For over two decades Juxtaposition Arts has mentored North Minneapolis youth artists with the help of industry professionals to foster the creativity and acumen of the next generation of artists.
