So Sorry & Thank you!

The Northwest Michigan Arts & Culture Network has been growing from its original grassroots organizing for the past several years. Thank you for being a part. 
COVID-19 has impacted arts and culture so much.
The need to support each other and our sector is stronger than ever. 

Please help continue to build the network by investing in our first membership drive.  Memberships are available for individuals and organizations of all disciplines in arts, culture, and creative businesses. Community champions can support the network with donations, engagement, and sponsorships.

Due to the economic challenges of COVID-19, first year fees have been set low for greater accessibility. Questions? Link here for membership info, visit www.nwmiarts.org or email arts@nwmiarts.net.
