The Network advocates for arts, culture, and our creative communities throughout northern Michigan and beyond - including artists, culture bearers, entrepreneurs, organizations, venues, public spaces. and all who contribute to our region's vibrant creative sector. 

We invite all to join the Network's efforts to tell the stories of impact, inspiration and engagement as we work together to further the arts and assure access, support and success for all. 

  • Advocating with Leaders: Communicate with elected officials at the local, state and national level to share impact and awareness on policy, funding, and issues.
  • Advocating Locally: Raising awareness with outreach, engagement and local impact
  • Showcasing the Creative Sector: Telling the individual and collective stories of the arts at work in Northern Michigan
