A team from Leadership Eau Claire, a program of the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce, has been working to develop the series through a collaboration between the Chippewa Valley Museum, the Children's Museum of Eau Claire, the Paul Bunyan Logging Camp Museum, and the LE Phillips Memorial Public Library. The series is a way for young people to discover or re-discover local arts, cultural and educational institutions. Proceeds from ticket sales from all After Dark events in the series will help support and grow the event series to involve other cultural institutions.
