Artists at the Community Development Table Workshop Presented with Americans for the Arts

 Registration is closed for this event

The power and importance of integrating artists and arts organizations into discussions about public policy, civic systems, and community development initiatives continues to grow every day. How and why artists and arts organizations engage with these initiatives continues to be a conversation that needs to be had, with the goal of empowering creatives to use their work for creative problem solving within communities.

Join us on May 21 for a one-day workshop as we look at what arts-based community development is and learn how artists and arts organizations can use their voices to build up the communities they are a part of. This workshop will include case studies, creative group exercises, and highlight the work of artists in our local community already engaging in this work. Come away feeling reinvigorated and ready to make change!

Local Artist Facilitators:

  • Pacia Elaine, Spoken Word Artist
  • Ryan Myers-Johnson, Dancer, Founder of Sidewalk Detroit
  • Julie Quiroz, Writer, Co-Founder of Untold Stories of Liberation & Love
  • Roseann Weiss, Creative Consultant

This initiative is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
