Join us on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 for Arts Advocacy Day as a part of an energized and engaged group making a difference on behalf of the creative sector in Michigan.

For the first time in nearly 10 years, Creative Many Michigan is bringing back Michigan Arts Advocacy Day to gather individuals and organizations from across the state to speak directly to lawmakers about the importance of support for arts, culture, arts education and the creative industries. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this historic day.

Attend as an Advocate

As an Arts Advocacy Day attendee, you’ll embark on an experience that will inspire you, inform you about the challenges and opportunities facing the creative community, and provide you with resources and motivation to advocate on behalf of the arts in your community.

Cost is $25 for general admission or $10 for students. The funds will cover lunch for attendees, print materials and will support artist fees.
