In Progress’s purpose is to diversify cultural dialogue and pave the way for new voices in the field of digital art making. In Progress provides opportunities for artists of all ages to develop their skills as digital storytellers and leaders through the use of photography, video, and music. This small non-profit has been promoting the voices of new and emerging artists since its inception in 1996, breaking down barriers of geography, class, education, and culture in the process. We use digital art making as a tool for public discourse, while building the skills of new makers so they may create, teach and lead.
Every year, In Progress artists travel to communities throughout Minnesota to work with those youth that have the least opportunities to be heard - those living in rural, tribal and migrant communities. They work together to create the stories of their communities, through the lens of their lives. The work created will take your breath away. It speaks to the pride, honor and love each of artist carries within.
