Irrigate: Mobilizing Local Artists to Solve Problems in Your Community

July 7, 2017

Springboard for the Arts is an economic and community development organization for artists and by artists. Springboard for the Arts’ mission is to cultivate vibrant communities by connecting artists with the skills, information, and services they need to make a living and a life.

Irrigate is an artist-led Creative Placemaking initiative pioneered in Saint Paul, MN through a partnership of Springboard for the Arts, the City of Saint Paul, and Twin Cities Local Initiatives Support Corporation. In Saint Paul, Irrigate is supported by ArtPlace, Central Corridor Funders Collaborative, F. R. Bigelow Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Rosemary H. and David F. Good Family Foundations, The Kresge Foundation, The McKnight Foundation, and The Saint Paul Foundation.

The Irrigate Toolkit is made possible through partnerships with the City of Saint Paul, and Twin Cities Local Initiatives Support Corporation, and with generous support from ArtPlace.
