growing a connected, creative, thriving community

Zeitgeist is a nonprofit arts and community development organization.

We are committed to growing and sustaining a community that is inclusive, diverse, and equitable; artistic and vibrant; environmentally conscious; and a place where every individual can thrive. Working in partnership across our region, Zeitgeist connects like-minded organizations and people to collaboratively create programs that make lasting change.

 

Zeitgeist is about enhancing and enriching the life of our community. We offer artists a venue to earn income from their work, and encourage them to be bold by offering them a venue free of censorship, judgment, or restriction. We support the local economy by committing to purchase from local farmers, businesses, and craftspeople.

WORK WITH US

Zeitgeist is looking for engaged members of the Hillside community to extend the work of our existing 7-person Steering Team to help Hillside residents and stakeholders get through the COVID-19 pandemic as successfully as possible. Across Minnesota, COVID has had a bigger impact on BIPOC, elders, and low income families than on others. Those are important voices as we work to reduce the impacts of COVID on those communities. BIPOC, elders, members of the LGBTQAI2S community, and low income community members are encouraged to apply to be a part of this team.
