The Bush Foundation hosted more than 1,000 participants at bushCONNECT on Oct. 1, 2018, at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. About 40 partner organizations brought a diverse network of people together and created inspiring programming around a theme of working across difference, and Michele Norris gave the keynote address.
The Bush Foundation sponsors events across the region where people can share ideas and build stronger networks.
Bush Foundation Events
Bush Foundation staff and board members travel and host events to build connections with our grantees and others doing important work to make our region better for everyone. In 2018, we sent cohorts to national conferences; connected with Bush Fellows, educators and arts and culture leaders; and hosted gatherings in Owatonna, Minnesota; Rapid City, South Dakota; northeast Minnesota and Leech Lake tribal communities.
