The campaign to raise $100,000 in aid for arts + creative organizations shuttered and artists and creatives workers out of work and without pay in the greater Ann Arbor area due to COVID-19.
Because of their kindness, once the green light is given, our creatives will be ready to return to the cultural gathering places to do what they do so remarkably: give of their art so that we may rejoice, renew, remember and reflect on our humanity as individuals and together as community.
The I.M.E. Fund $10,000
