What's happening?

2023 marks the new JXTA campus. It brings the opening of our brand-new headquarters, updated community and teaching space, and a one-of-a-kind archive and library, after a successful $14 million capital campaign. With your help, we are deeply investing in our facilities, programming, and in the creative futures of youth in North Minneapolis. Our goal is to create a stronger cultural ecosystem for our region, helping to guarantee a cultural legacy and asset for future generations in North Minneapolis. Stay tuned for more information about what is next, including grand opening celebrations, new programming, and new ways to support. After 26 years, we’re building for the next 26.
