OTA and Pollen, two incredible or- ganizations that work to collide and connect creative and civic-minded individuals, are colliding themselves. And, in the process, they believe they might just spark a regional transformation in North Dakota, South Dakota and Min- nesota with a world class network of individuals, organiza- tions, communities and ideas. Not familiar with OTA or Pollen? Over the past five years OTA has formed a movement dedicated to ,connecting the disconnected' throughout North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. Led by South Dakota native Hugh Weber, the OTA series of events brings to- gether the region's best and brightest along with world thought leaders to share insights and expertise, develop re- lationships and create limitless possibility. Pollen, over the past five years, has grown to become the Twin Cities' largest digital network of civic-minded con- nectors. The content is crowd sourced and created by a cross-sector community focused on elevating the personal and professional growth of its members. Long-term Pollen volunteers, and co-founders of the literary arts magazine Pa- per Darts, Jamie Millard and Meghan Murphy, recently tran- sitioned to become the organization's main leadership stew- ards. Earlier this summer, each organization was approached by the Bush Foundation about working together to explore ways to further develop their unique platforms. "Isolated leaders are a barrier to effective community problem-solving," said Jennifer Ford Reedy, president of the Bush Foundation. "Our region has a number of leadership hubs and networks that struggle to build and maintain con- nections among their members. Very little has been done to build connections across these groups. That's where OTA and Pollen can think bigger, think differently, and spark regional transformation--by becoming the leading digital and phys- region and globe." A portion of the Bush Foundation investment will lead to the substantial infusion in the region's creative freelance market. "Where there is inspiration, there will be resources for ac- tion. We want to make the Midwest a prosperous space for dreaming and for doing," said Meghan Murphy, creative ex- ecutive director, OTA-Pollen. "We will seek out the most tal- ented writers, illustrators, photographers and makers to com- petitively compensate them as they capture the inspiring ical network of networks." stories of leaders throughout our region."
