Since 2018, Artists on Main Street (AoMS) has been activating artists and creatives in historic downtowns in Minnesota and North Dakota. A collaboration between Minnesota Main Street and Springboard for the Arts, AoMS has provided an alternative means to solving challenges that downtowns face. Using Main Street basic principles combined with creative people-power approaches, local artists and creatives have been trained in placemaking initiatives to tackle the tough issues that their towns face. By employing a "lots of little" approach, AoMS has changed people's minds and transformed downtowns.
