More on the Minnesota Regenerative Publishing Project
The MN Regenerative Publishing Project’s purpose was to create a plan to increase the access, engagement, and visibility of people of African descent in the Publishing Arts industry. In doing this we hope to create a process that provides for the consistent creation, sharing, and distributing of these missing narratives. A group of over 20 inter-generational consultants from across the state of Minnesota came together to discuss strategies to fulfill this purpose. A central idea was to create an institution that could support the publishing arts professions and industry within the African-American/ Black /African heritage community in Minnesota. This support includes 1) Accessing funds from the State, foundations, and other grant-giving organizations to support this publishing arts initiative. 2) Creating a centralized database to showcase and provide access to the literary work of artists and other publishing arts professionals of African descent in Minnesota. 3) Provide opportunities for novice and others interested in the publishing arts to enhance their skills and knowledge to allow them to better gain access to the industry and/or strengthen their skills and marketability in the field.
