Help 构建 the Network
The Northwest Michigan 艺术 and 文化网络 formed as a grassroots response to the needs of individual 艺术家 and arts and cultural organizations. 五年, we are now a 501(c)3 and have begun the hard work of strengthening the system that supports a thriving creative sector.
The challenges of 新型冠状病毒肺炎 have dramatically impacted arts and culture locally and nationally. The reasons the Network formed are even more important right now.
