We're not going back to our old ways; your support helps us SpringForward
Dear Friend, 

Thank you!

Warm hands to everyone who joined us last night for The Art of We: Re•Focus. In case you missed it or want to re-watch, it's available here on YouTube through June 30. While we look forward to coming together in-person soon, we cherished the opportunity to celebrate how far we've come, uplift stories from our disability community, and look to how we're keeping ACCESS at the forefront of our work and our culture beyond the pandemic. 
Thanks to your immense generosity, we raised $13,275 yesterday! Now we're cumulatively over 60% of the way to our goal of $35,000 by June 30!

On view through
June 30

We're proud to present our Re•Focus photo exhibit, featuring interviews, poems, and songs from and with our disability community. On view now through June 30 at upstreamarts.org/refocus

It's not too late to give!

If you didn't get a chance to give or would like to help us make it the rest of the way to our goal, now is a great time to invest! 

SpringForwardMN, GiveMN's spring giving event for MN nonprofits and schools, is launching tomorrow, May 1-11th!
Not only will contributions to Upstream Arts be matched up to $10,000 thanks to the MaryAnn Lippay and Stephen Kanee Family Fund, but every contribution will also make us eligible for additional lottery grants up to $50,000 from GiveMN! 

From all of us at Upstream Arts, thank you again for being beside us during this crucial time, and investing in our work of the moment - not to go back to old ways, but to continue to integrate and innovate new modes of working with more accessible options than ever before. There is still so much to do, but knowing that we have the support of loyal community members like you is helping us use this moment to ensure that ACCESS is the way forward!

With deep gratitude,
Julie, Matt, Bree, and all of us at Upstream Arts
Double your impact - and ours
