Net / Working Groups

The Alliance facilitates meetings and communications among a wide variety of peer-based groups. Contact us if you'd like help forming a group!

Visit our upcoming events page to see the next meeting scheduled for each of these groups.

Arts Administrators
All arts administrators welcome. Meetings are usually on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 8:00 a.m., alternating between Minneapolis and St. Paul. The meetings are an informal gathering of those of us who do or oversee a variety of functions at our organizations to:

  • Build community
  • Candidly exchange strategies, ideas and industry news that affects all of us
  • Lift us up a few feet “above the fray” to “sharpen our mental swords” before plunging back into the daily battle

Email Leah to get on the mailing list for this group.

Artistic Directors
All artistic directors welcome. A monthly breakfast, usually on the last Tuesday of the month, at 9:00 a.m. at Maria's Cafe, 1113 East Franklin Ave, Minneapolis. No RSVPs required. The conversation is collegial and informal. Occasionally we invite special guests. Email Leah to get on the mailing list for this group.

Emerging Performing Arts Leaders
In follow-up to many exciting conversations at the Who’s in Charge conference, the Alliance has assembled a working group of emerging performing arts leaders to network, learn from each other, and brainstorm ways that – through collaboration and Alliance support – they can take on greater roles of leadership and impact in our community. Email Ashley to get on thie mailing list for this group. Learn more ...

Sustainable Theaters of Minnesota
We are a group of professionals in the theater industry striving to lead change throughout our organizations and the industry toward sustainable and green practices. We aim to share best practices and find solutions to common challenges. We welcome new members and hope this community will grow to include every theater in Minnesota. We meet on the 2nd Monday of the month. Every other month we meet at 10:00 a.m. at Brave New Workshop in downtown Minneapolis, and every other month we meet at 5:00 p.m. for a happy hour at The Republic at Seven Corners in Minneapolis. To join the group, visit our group Web site and create an account. You will get automatic reminders of upcoming events and related news.

NEMMBLE: community-based art practitioners
Do you make art that is community-based, following methodologies such at Theatre of the Oppressed or Cornerstone Theatre? If so, you might find your peers and inspiration among this group. We meet just occasionally to share stories, ideas, and values. Email Leah to get on the mailing list for this group.
