FORWARD ARTS

EMERGING ARTS LEADERS DETROIT KICK-OFF EVENT
10.01.14

Detroit is known worldwide for contributions to the arts. But how do we grow the arts here longterm? Supporting the next generation of arts and cultural administrators and leaders is a crucial component to advancing and elevating Detroit’s artistic community. A young professional arts network (under 40) will strengthen the skill-set of young arts leaders, create deeper connections and opportunities for collaboration in the community, and, ultimately, stimulate a vibrant, interconnected arts and culture sector.

Come out to Happy Hour at MotorCity Wine to steer the direction of the program by providing your input, and learn about our research and connections of others Emerging Arts Leadership groups we have connected with from Pittsburgh, Seattle, San Francisco, Washington DC, New York, and the national organization through Americans For The Arts.

Emerging Arts Leaders Detroit is a program of Forward Arts that provides professional development opportunities for arts administrators across metropolitan Detroit. Curators, critics, arts managers, educators and presenters are invited to engage in culture-centered conversations

Can't make the Emerging Arts Leaders kick-off event but want to know more and/or get involved? Send us an email: info@ForwardArtsDetroit.org.


I SEE YOU, DSO.
09.10.14

Outside of New Music Detroit's Strange Beautiful Music VII this Saturday (which you should definitely go to), the DSO has (at least) two upcoming events in their Music Box venue that is of high interest around here. My Brightest Diamond comes next week on September 19th as part of her tour (you'll see Shara Worden Saturday too, if you go to Strange Beautiful Music). And Shigeto, on October 23, will be playing live with other musicians for the first time.

Both events are definitive highlights both locally and nationally, which makes them all the more interesting. Check out the DSO website for more details HERE.

You also might remember Shara Worden from, among other things, Matthew Barney's River of Fundament film that showed at the DIA earlier this year. That film, partially filmed in Detroit, was the very first project Forward Arts was hired for. And now the musical circle is complete...


CHRYSLER AND 5 ARTISTS FROM MEXICO
08.08.14

Recently Forward Arts had the pleasure of helping Chrysler host 5 artists from Mexico City, in town to get some Detroit inspiration. We got to show them around Detroit, some of it's history, and of course some different art spots around town. The artists will now go back to Mexico City, and produce works inspired by our city's culture and the new Chrysler 200. Excited to see what they come up with! We'll post up what they produce in the fall when completed.

Our favorite part of the day is when we ate Supino Pizza outside Recycle Here! They spoke with Forward Arts and some friends we brought along, electronic music artist Kevin Reynolds and Detroit cultural ambassador Adriel Thornton.
