Community Conversation

Wednesday | July 19 | 5:30pm
Page Theatre | Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota Campus

The Page Theatre is working to strengthen our connections with the community, and we need your help to create that future together!

We are working with Engage Winona to gather input from a deep and diverse cross-section of community members on the Page Series vision, mission, programming, community partnerships and more. As a part of that work, we’re pleased to invite you to attend a special community conversation on Wednesday, July 19 at 5:30 p.m. 

You’ll get an opportunity to sit directly on the Page Theatre stage, connect with fellow arts supporters, and offer ideas about your vision for the Page Series’ future. Following the conversation, we’ll offer a backstage tour – a special opportunity to see what happens behind the scenes of Page Series shows. 

What’s in it for you? A chance for your voice to be heard, and to have a big role in creating the future of a vital Saint Mary’s and Winona community institution. You’ll also have an opportunity to give broader input on the crucial role arts play in the Winona community, with your voice having direct influence on Engage Winona’s future work in advising arts and community organizations. This event is open to all who wish to participate, but please RSVP to let us know you’ll be coming and help us anticipate our setup needs. Can’t make it? Fill out the RSVP form and we’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on future engagement opportunities.

RSVP Here:  or call 507-457-1715.
