  • The Depot was awarded a grant from the Minnesota Regional Arts Council to add a digital sound recorder and mixer to the house live music sound system.  This was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.”
  • The Depot was featured in the blog of MPR's 89.3 The Current on Sept 4, 2012 as #4 on the top 10 list of Twin Cities venues for the all-ages crowd. Read the blog post.
  • Without a doubt, the biggest event in 2012 occurred when, in February, the operational responsibilities of the coffee shop portion of the Depot were transferred to the Youth Project Board and staff. This came about after several years of sub-contracting with an independent business to work in the space. It was a big step, a big risk, and a great deal of work (and experimentation). The Depot Youth Advisory Board felt is was important to keep the business running as normally as possible while a huge restructure occurred in staffing and other systems operations. The goal was to completely embody the graphic emblems – coffee cup, musical note, and wheel - in the Depot logo.
