UMS is thrilled to share some exciting news about a partnership with the City of Ypsilanti, that will result in a two- to four-week artistic residency at the Ypsilanti Freighthouse twice each year.

Join a Community Arts Forum to provide input on and ideas for the kinds of programming you’d like to see during these residencies. All are invited to this free event.

Our first seasonal residency at the Freighthouse will be held in the Spring of 2023, and we want to prioritize programming and access for Ypsilanti residents. Our core purpose in this endeavor is to serve as an additive and supportive resource to the City of Ypsilanti by co-curating an engaging and diverse array of performing arts programs.

To meet this goal, we must first understand the needs and interests of community members, ensuring that we are taking the appropriate steps towards adding to the city’s arts ecology. We are eager to highlight local and visiting artists and to bring attention to the city’s cultural vibrancy.

During the forum, we will share more information and initial ideas about residency possibilities, and create plenty of space for you to share your ideas and feedback. There will be a brief performance and light refreshments. UMS would be honored to have your voice in the room.

Please RSVP to let us know if you are able to attend and to dream with us — and if you’re not able to attend that night but are interested in being involved, please let us know that as well! Thank you for your time and collaboration.
