ARTISTS CREATING TOGETHER STUDIO CLOSURE & PROGRAM CANCELLATIONS
For the health and well-being of our artists, students, volunteers, and staff, ACT closed to the public on Friday, March 13, 2020. We are mindful of the evolving situation surrounding COVID-19 and are committed to closely monitoring and responding appropriately to the preventative measures from the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
WE ARE LAUNCHING A “STAY HOME & STAY CREATIVE” YOUTUBE CHANNEL
We plan to post videos of our #StayHomeStayCreative activities, led by ACT Teaching Artists. These can be found on our YouTube Channel - be sure to follow us @ACTinGR. We hope to share as many as we can during this time, but need your support to make it happen! Please consider a donation by clicking here to support all that ACT does in the community!
WE MOVED OUR ACTION ART EXHIBIT TO A VIRTUAL PLATFORM
Public voting will take place from March 31st to April 2nd and all pieces will be online for as long as possible for viewing. Check out the gallery here.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER
We want to ensure that our programs can continue smoothly as soon as it is safe to do so. Thousands of individuals with and without disabilities rely on ACT to offer a community space for creativity, belonging, and joy - something that has been deeply missed in our community during this time and we need your support to ensure there is no delay or gaps in our services.
