Community Programs

We believe in the power of the arts for community engagement, for exploring critical issues in our world through a new lens, and for building understanding about ourselves and others. Blackbird Arts offers several community-focused programs: ArtsWOW (Arts Without Walls), Accessible Arts, and Community Arts. These programs connect people to the arts beyond our studio walls.

Blackbird Arts strives to create innovative, high quality programming that is sensistive to the needs of our community. We partner with more than a dozen schools, nonprofit organizations and social service agencies to meet those needs.

In 2017, we have provided over 1,500 hands-on art and music experiences for adults, youth and families in the Grand Traverse Region.
