Arts& Initiative

The Arts& Initiative promotes creativity and innovation by presenting a series of student-led interdisciplinary “salons” that explore the role and impact of art and design & other human endeavors and academic disciplines. Invited panelists engage the participating audience in thoughtful two-way dialogues, culminating in conversation during a post-panel reception. Topics such as Arts& Women, Arts& Animal Rights, or Arts& Social Justice are currently under discussion for 2017-2018.

We are looking for students who want to be involved in planning these exciting, impactful events on campus throughout the year. Visit our table at Festifall and Northfest or contact splouff@umich.edu.

The Arts& Initiative is a sponsored student organization supported by ArtsEngine and has chapters at the University of Michigan, University of Houston, University of Alabama Birmingham, and Penn State University.
