ArtServe Michigan is now Creative Many Michigan!
We have changed our name but remain true to our mission and passionate commitment to the arts, culture, creativity and design in Michigan. Creative Many Michigan — developing creative people, creative places and the creative economy for a competitive Michigan.
As Creative Many Michigan, we align our identity with the expanding portfolio of our work today — advocacy/public policy, research, professional practice programs, resources and communications — aimed at positioning the arts, culture and creative industries as essential contributing forces in our state’s economy, the vitality of our communities, the education of our children and the prosperity of Michigan’s people.
Creative Many works to advance and promote supportive policies and diversified, sustainable public/private funding to cultivate the creative economy — arts, culture, arts education and the creative and design industries — in Michigan. To accomplish these goals, Creative Many conducts and shares research, organizes and leads advocates, creates and promotes strategic partnerships, and works to inform elected officials, business and community leaders on the importance of the creative sector to Michigan's future.
In addition to representing the sector at the local, state and federal decision-making tables, Creative Many provides information and tools to equip and engage others in our work to advance the creative economy in communities throughout Michigan.
