This inter­ac­tive U‑M Arts Ini­tia­tive event focuses on the ways that the Visual Arts in our region have per­se­vered and even thrived dur­ing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Musi­cians, actors, artists, and insti­tu­tions have had their abil­ity to prac­tice, per­form and exhibit severely impeded by the COVID-19 pan­demic. Despite the chal­lenges, many have devel­oped cre­ative ways to stay active with their craft and engage the com­mu­nity. Join us for an inter­ac­tive dis­cus­sion via Zoom of the var­i­ous ways artists and insti­tu­tions in the Detroit area have per­se­vered and even thrived dur­ing the COVID-19 pan­demic. This will be the first of a two-part Town Hall focus­ing on both the Visual and the Per­form­ing Arts. 

Mod­er­a­tor: Mary­rose Flani­gan, exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities. 

This event is orga­nized by the U‑M Arts Ini­tia­tive in part­ner­ship with the Detroit Cen­ter, a2ru, the Carr Cen­ter, and Con­cert of Colors.
