Marketing Resources

CultureSource provides a voice for the arts and culture sector, using our news platform and strategic partnerships to cultivate original editorial coverage. Our feature stories elevate arts and culture programming, highlight community-wide trends, and connect the arts community to the greater for-profit business, education, and civic audiences. 

CultureSource is the home to the most comprehensive arts and cultural calendar in Southeast Michigan, with all artistic mediums represented. CultureSource member organizations, programs and leaders provide the foundation for all editorial coverage on CultureSource.org. CultureSource member events posted to the regional calendar may be highlighted in our weekly eNewsletters—The Source, on social media, and on our website, where members receive a dedicated personalized page in our member directory.

Advocacy

CultureSource acts as the collective voice for the sector in Southeast Michigan. Representing our members, CultureSource is in a unique position to act as an intermediary between the arts and culture sector as a whole, and the larger community of which we are a part.  

Advocacy is a two-way street: on the one hand, helping the community to appreciate and to maximize the benefits of arts and culture for education, civic engagement and community development; and on the other hand, helping arts and culture organizations to understand their potential for community impact, and to improve their contributions to the greater good of the region.
