Community Alliances

Partners, Advocates, & Friends

In an effort to involve the community comprehensively in our mission, the Ann Arbor Summer Festival frequently collaborates with local artists and organizations offering culturally relevant programming, services, and support. These community-based alliances foster diversity, inclusion, and growth.

When looking to establish community partnerships, the festival uses the following criteria:

  • Reciprocal: To the extent possible, it should be a mutual sharing of time, resources, skills, and knowledge.
  • Mutually Beneficial: It should contribute to each partner’s respective mission, goals, and objectives.
  • Sustainable: It should be developed with the intent of maintaining an ongoing and sustainable relationship through collaborative exchange.

Past festival partners include arts and cultural organizations, academic institutions, human service agencies, youth and teen groups, and other community networks.  Activities have included artist workshops, music and dance demonstrations, hands-on craft projects, storytelling and creative play, science education, games for all ages, special interest presentations, and community resource areas.

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival welcomes inquiries from organizations wishing to discuss partnership opportunities.
