Unlike past years when the MACC team went on the road for in-person presentations, they are expanding outreach with a combination of online office hours, in-person presentations in southern MI, Zoom with the Network and in the UP, and by video recording.

MACC will also be represented at the 2023 NW MI Arts & Culture Summit on 5/9. Executive Director Alison Watson will be featured during the Summit’s first panel. Alex Flannery will be participating all day and available to meet to discuss FY24 grants et al.

Call for Artists: 5/5 Downtown TC Art Walk

Downtown Traverse City is hosting its 2023 Spring Art Walk on Friday, 5/5, 4-7pm. We welcome artists of all diciplines to participate. Artists will be paired with a business and are expected to be on-site throughout the event. You will work directly with businesses to coordiate your display, space needs and any other logistics. Artists are responsible for their own easels or other display materials. (The Network may be able to lend a few easels if needed). It is free for artists to participate. While the DTCA and Network will help promote the Art Walk, cross promotion by artists is encouraged, especially by social media.
