Network E-News, 5/6/2021

Northwest Michigan Arts & Culture Network partnered to help pair up artists and businesses for the Downtown Traverse City Art Walk on Friday, 5/7 and Saturday, 5/8, 4-7pm. Join the fun, take a springtime stroll and welcome the artwalk back after its pandemic hiatus. Link on the map for artists, merchants and event information. An added plus is the Network connecting with
the Veterans Insprining Veterans artist group, with four VIV artists participating. Participants can check out interactive community art activities from  Crooked Tree Arts Center, Arts for All, & the Dennos Museum. Pick up a walking guide at all participating locations.

Kudos! 2021 Virtual Summit a Success

What a great day for the Northwest Michigan Arts & Culture Network 2021 Summit. 70 participants, 28 speakers, 9 breakouts, 3 large panels, 1 6-hour Zoom & 0 tech problems!

We celebrated resilience, uncertainty and our many pandemic pivots that challenged all in arts and culture to try new paths and partnerships while recovering from this devastating year. Speakers dove into: diversity and inclusion, the urgency of advocacy, the power of partnerships and the role of art in the public space – all with rich discussion and deep insight. Breakouts shared tools, resources and what’s working well while working hard. And, despite not being able to gather in person, we did what Networks do well and is our strength, especially in these COVID times – we shared, we learned, we grew relationships, and we came together to continue using our collective voice to advocate for our artists, organizations, colleagues and communities as we move forward toward recovery.

NOTE: A survey to participants will go out soon. Summit recordings and resources will be shared shortly – watch for a new summit resources page next week on www.nwmiarts.org
