Project Overview

In May 2009, the Minnesota State Legislature asked the Minnesota Humanities Center and four state councils-the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, the Council on Black Minnesotans, the Chicano Latino Affairs Council, and the Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans-to collaboratively create new programs and events that celebrates and preserves the artistic, historical, and cultural heritages of the communities represented by each council.  

The Humanities Center's work with the Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans (CAPM) is primarily focused on bringing cultural awareness and education to Minnesotans through a variety of public arts and cultural events.
