Arts and Cultural Organizations throughout Michigan are formed for the purpose of developing, promoting and producing the work of artists in various visual and performing arts. We partner with these organizations to promote Downriver's growing cultural scene to the community. We offer a venue for networking, including frequent opportunities to meet and discuss topics of shared professional interests. We advocate the arts by speaking as a unified voice to promote and elevate the role of arts and culture in Downriver's life and economic development. Would you like to join us? Please download our membership brochure or give us a call today!

Be A Good Little Widow
By Bekah Brunstetter, directed by Adriane Galea
Oct 27 – Nov 18, 2017
Young wife Melody has never been to a funeral – until her husband dies in a plane crash. Expected to instantly assume proper widowhood, Melody is left to wonder, what’s the right way to grieve? Fortunately, her mother-in-law is a professional. Widow, that is. Under her guidance, Melody must try her best to be a good little widow. A sad comedy about loss and longing.
