We know the Twin Cities are a great place to live when it comes to art and culture. From First Avenue to the Walker to the Guthrie and every coffee house and punk club in between, the arts have always been a thriving part of our quality of life. So is there a connection between economic health and the role that art and culture have to making this a great place to work and call home? And what's more important - lots of jobs, or having a "cool" reputation - when you want to attract top talent? We'll tackle these questions at our next Policy and a Pint, presented by 89.3 Current and The Citizens League. Join host Steve Seel and guests Peter Leggett, Chair of Saint Paul’s Cultural STAR Board, Director of Walker West Music Academy and Drummer for Heiruspecs; Gulgun Kayim, Director of Arts, Culture and Creative Economy at the City of Minneapolis; and Laura Zabel, Executive Director of Springboard for the Arts, for a lively conversation about how the arts are key to fostering a strong urban core. It's part of our State of the State series, made possible with support from Target Corporation. Doors open at 5:30 p.m, program begins at 6 p.m.
