Minnesota Citizens for the Arts (MCA) is a diverse statewide grassroots arts advocacy organization that organizes the arts community to lobby Minnesota’s State Legislature, Governor, Arts Board and Congressional delegation to ensure opportunity for all Minnesotans to have access to and involvement in the arts. MCA’s Board of Directors is comprised of 36 members, half of whom live outside of the seven-county Twin Cities metro area.
MCA is committed to maintaining a culture of diversity and equity in our arts advocacy. We seek to assemble a board that fully represents the various cultures, backgrounds and viewpoints held by Minnesotans. As a membership body, our strength is in our promise to be inclusive. Therefore, MCA embraces candidates from diverse populations and/or underrepresented groups to continue to achieve our mission.
