Project Optimist

St. Michael, MN

Creative Midwest Media Cohort


Project Optimist Logo


Project Optimist strives to engage residents of greater Minnesota to help them collaborate across common divides, tackle seemingly intractable problems and grow more optimistic about the future of their communities, region, and world. They produce solution-focused stories and local art to inform and inspire on their online platform.

As part of the Creative Midwest Media Cohort, Project Optimist will launch its Biophilia program, a series of features—commissioned and community-sourced—that celebrate the beauty of the natural world. They plan to work with artists, naturalists, scientists, folk schools, and other thought leaders to explore our affinity with nature.
