U-M Arts Initiative Signature

Propose a Project

During its startup phase, the Arts Initiative is funding projects, performances, and other activities that will inform the planning of the initiative and encourage creative, inclusive engagement within U-M and the broader community. We invite all U-M students, faculty and staff to explore key questions such as:

  • How can we incorporate art and art making into the student experience?
  • How can the arts bring us together and address large-scale societal issues?
  • How can the arts catalyze discovery and innovation in research, teaching and service?

Through the development of pilot projects that align with one or more of these themes:

  • advancing creative collaboration,
  • arts in action/transformative performances,
  • catalyzing capacities, or
  • expanding/growing audiences and communities.

Awards will be announced mid-summer 2020.
