The Creative Heritage Initiative
The Enduring Encore: Safeguarding the Past to Inform the Future
Through your patronage, you have helped create one of the most vibrant cultural communities in the country. You have sat in darkened theaters and concert halls, bought books, and attended readings. This rich historical record is preserved in the Performing Arts Archives and Upper Midwest Literary Archives at the University of Minnesota.
We need your support
The $3.3 million Creative Heritage Initiative will preserve the scripts and scores, galleys and photographs, audio and video recordings that document the extraordinary creative output of the theaters, music organizations, dance companies, writers and publishers who thrive here.
