Arts for All of Northern Michigan offers arts and cultural experiences to connect people of ALL abilities.

Our Vision

  • We are creating spaces and activities where everyone grows, gains, and connects,
    and where there is value for all.
  • We want people to experience happy and joyful connections.
  • We want people to feel safe.
  • We want more accessible places and inclusive experiences in the broader community.
  • We are striving to create a sense of belonging, for and among all, in our community.

We want to inspire others to do the same.

Art was the first of all languages. It remains today our best and most universal vehicle for expression. For many people with disabilities, the arts are an important way to define themselves in our world.

Arts for All provides access and inclusive opportunities for children and adults with and without disabilities to experience and grow through the arts. Since 1993, Arts for All has touched the lives of thousands of children and adults of all abilities in northwest lower Michigan through music, dance, drama, creative writing and visual art.

Arts for All is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We celebrate diversity and seek to be an inclusive organization in our staff, board, and volunteers.

Acts of Kindness (AOK) Endowment Fund

Dee and Gregg Smith have given the arts organization of Northern Michigan an endowment through the GTCCF’s Acts of Kindness program. This endowment will benefit the organization’s programs. The Smiths established this fund to honor their mother, Helen, who suffered from a stroke in her 50s. Dee and Gregg have supported the organization for many years, and we are so grateful for their generosity.
