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!
