ARTSERVE MICHIGAN INC
January 6, 2011

Artserve Michigan has educated me & others in the arts about our role in informing our legislators about the reasons arts deserve support even in times of economic decline. They've been innovative doing this when all in our state are financially hurting. Whether an actual conference or an e-conference, they produce talking points showing why the arts are crucial to both our state's future & its current economy. Ideas from them were enacted by our legislature & they've kept arts organizations & supporters aware of whom to contact & when contact is needed.

We may not win all our battles to support the arts, but with Artserve MI we at least know what battles need fighting & how to do it. This has kept the arts from being wiped out of funding, preserving a baseline from which recovery may proceed.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing some of my friends stay in MI because the film industry is becoming established here. Prior to this I've seen a departure occur, so it's good to see this reverse. Both recent grads & established artists are encouraged & any encouragement in MI is a major change!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Just keep doing what they're doing & not lose any staff nor ground in their work.
