Nicole Mulder, director of Theatre L'Homme Dieu, named president of statewide arts group

The Minnesota Presenters Network is a statewide organization formed in 1992. It is a non-profit, volunteer/membership organization with a mission to connect and cultivate relationships among performing arts professionals.

The Minnesota Presenters Network (MPN) has named Nicole Mulder as the new board president. Mulder is the executive director of Theatre L’Homme Dieu in Alexandria.

Shantel Nelson Dow, MPN vice president, says “Nicole is an incredible asset to this organization and a driving force to support the membership of MPN. She will lead us as the performing arts communities in Minnesota recoup after almost two years navigating through the pandemic.”

The Minnesota Presenters Network is a statewide organization formed in 1992. It is a non-profit, volunteer/membership organization with a mission to connect and cultivate relationships among performing arts professionals. Membership includes artists, agents, managers, and arts administrators -- a diverse group of leaders of performing arts organizations of all sizes, from the metro to smaller communities and rural areas.

“It has been my pleasure to be a part of MPN for several years now,” Mulder said. “The relationships and professional development opportunities I’ve received from the network are invaluable -- both to me and, in turn, for the organization and community where I work.”

MPN acts as a tool to share, distribute and exchange information pertinent to Minnesota presenters and artists. Members work together to bring exceptional and diverse arts programming to communities throughout Minnesota.

The network has been a valuable resource for many members during this unprecedented, even critical, time for artists and arts organizations. Mulder said she wants to thank the recent past-president, Blake Potthoff (executive director, Fairmont Opera House), along with other members of the MPN Board, for their leadership navigating the uncharted waters of a pandemic.

“The strength of the arts across Minnesota has a lot to do with connections and relationships. It is our relationships, many rooted in the Network, that allow for collaboration and information sharing,” Mulder said. “I am honored to be entrusted to lead this smart, inclusive, and courageous community of arts professionals; they are some of the state’s most creative minds. I am looking forward to working with them to continue to build and strengthen the impact MPN has on the arts across Minnesota.”
