The following press release was sent to me and I encourage fellow NoMi residents to attend and spread the word.
Event Features Presentations & Performances from the Forefront of Local Culture & Community

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - On March 18th ten of the Twin Cities most inspiring changemakers will take the stage at the historic Capri Theater in North Minneapolis for an evening of short, inspiring presentations. SOLUTIONS TWIN CITIES VOLUME 4, the latest in the series of Solutions Twin Cities events designed and presented by Works Progress, aims to spotlight this eclectic array of creative ideas and people while providing a unique opportunity for the community to connect. Audiences will encounter surprising stories of community-based innovation from a cross-section of our cities emerging and established leaders. Since 2007 Solutions Twin Cities has facilitated presentations by an expansive array of individuals - from artists to economists, scientists to urban planners, and community organizers to entrepreneurs. This event marks the return of this popular series after a 2-year hiatus.

The group behind SOLUTIONS TWIN CITIES VOLUME 4, the arts collaborative Works Progress, hope that this event will help to spread the word about some of our local innovators and their world-changing ideas. Works Progress also hopes that Solutions Volume 4 will inspire people in the Twin Cities and beyond to get involved in actively shaping their world.

The recently renovated Capri Theater is located at 2027 West Broadway Ave Minneapolis, MN, 55411. Doors will open for Solutions Volume 4 on Friday, March 18th at 6:00 PM. The event will take place from 7PM to 9PM, with a reception to follow. Tickets go on sale February 18th for what is sure to be a sold out show.

Ticket Information
Tickets for SOLUTIONS TWIN CITIES VOLUME 4 are $8 to $16 (pay what you can), and can be purchased online (beginning February 18th) or at the door. Guests also have the option to sponsor a ticket. Sponsored tickets will be distributed by Solutions Twin Cities event partners to adults and teens in our community.

About Solutions Twin Cities & Works Progress
Solutions Twin Cities was created by college friends Troy Gallas and Colin Kloecker in 2007. Gallas and Kloecker desired a platform for creative people in the Twin Cities to tell their stories, and decided to pioneer this interdisciplinary live event format. In 2008 Gallas, Kloecker and collaborators co-founded the group Works Progress and expanded their scope to include a wider range of community-based programs and projects, including the popular series Give & Take and Salon Saloon.
