In the season of crop art and butter sculptures at the Great Minnesota Get Together, Torch Community invites you to learn how the arts create, connect, and inspire our communities. Be ready to mix and mingle, get creative with language (what exactly is an Artopolis?), and have a dramatically good time at the Acoustic Campfire after-party. Don't delay; online registration closes tonight!

Together with group activities led by the TORCH Arts Partners, you will learn and discuss what a thriving arts community can do to enrich the community, and the role that businesses can play in helping them in their mission. You will be given an opportunity to share your experiences and join in the conversation.Peter Rothstein is one of the Twin Cities' most accomplished directors, having worked in theatre, musical theatre, opera, and new work development.
