This week, more than 40 artists participate in two Professional Development Program (PDP) workshops in Ann Arbor and Detroit, MI, hosted by ArtServe Michigan. The first workshop, presented in partnership with the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan, takes place on July 17 and is a one-day intensive focusing on Strategic Planning and Community Engagement. The second is a Core Skills Weekend Workshop for the 2014 Kresge Fellows, taking place from July 18-20 in Detroit.
Jon Brumit, a 2013 Kresge Fellow who attended a Creative Capital Core Skills Workshop in Detroit last fall, called the experience “incredibly illuminating.” He stated, “The future seems to be unfolding into a much larger, brighter space now as I grapple with new methods of organization.” We hope the artists this year have a similarly positive experience. Many thanks to ArtServe Michigan, the University of Michigan and our incredible leaders—Colleen Keegan, Aaron Landsman, Jackie Battenfield, Byron Au Yong and Ela Troyano—for making these workshops possible!
