À la cARTe Initiative: Putting food and art on the menu through artist-led interactive activities on the road.
Sprout MN is facilitating a cohort of artists to enhance the Mobile Market shopping experience, as well as various community events, using portable artist studios. These portable studios or art carts will be used to engage the community through art and food, with an end goal of lasting healthy behavior changes that support physical and mental wellbeing.
The geographic territory of this project are the five Central Minnesota counties of Crow Wing, Cass, Morrison, Todd and Wadena. The four (4) artists engaged in this project are from Brainerd, Staples, Little Falls, and Otsego.

The majority of photography and videography will take place at the artist’s residence / art cart build sites and community events. The project assumes 17 hours of travel within the three-month project period in order to capture on location.

Total budget is $5,000. The videographer / photographer can determine how the funds are used to support the deliverables of the project in consultation with Sprout MN.
