*Join us for an evening Urban Currents event*
Steve Marsh, Senior Writer, Mpls-St. Paul Magazine and Lisa Middag, Director of Nicollet Activation, Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District
We threw a party, we invited the world. By most accounts, it ran smoothly and people had a good time. But now that everyone’s gone, we ask ourselves….what did we learn? Not about how to host an event, but rather what did we learn about ourselves? What did we learn about our City? And how can we use what we learned to improve our daily lives – in between the big events.
Please join us for Urban Currents on Wednesday evening, March 28, 2018 to discuss.
