Announcing our 2019-2020 Program Council!

Tyra Payer

Our Program Council members are hard at work! These seven artists are working to review, plan, and envision strategies for the future of the Northern Spark festival.  This strategic focus will culminate in a Strategic Framework for Community Engagement at Northern Spark that will inform planning processes for the festival in 2021 and beyond.

Each member of 2019-2020 Council has direct experience with Northern Spark either as a commissioned festival artist or previous Program Council member, or both! They also hold relationships and histories with communities in the city of Saint Paul, which is an additional focus of our research and reflection year.

Meet the Program Council members here!

Thank you to Cultural STAR for supporting the Program Council and our partnerships in Saint Paul.
