Arts Ambassadors


The Arts Ambassador Program is designed to increase student awareness of the arts on campus and connect students who share an interest in the arts.

We’re looking for enthusiastic and friendly students who have an interest in the arts that they want to share! We’re a student organization that serves as a bridge for the U-M student body to creative events and activities. As an Arts Ambassador you'll learn about the arts both on campus and in the Ann Arbor community, meet local artists, and help promote the arts.

Being a part of the Arts Ambassadors student organization is an extremely rewarding, engaging, and fun experience! As an Arts Ambassador, you will attend weekly meetings, have opportunities to take leadership roles in organizing arts events, collaborate with other Arts Ambassadors to engage students in the arts, and most importantly, help cultivate a campus community that values the arts.

The Arts Ambassadors are back with suggestions on how to Press Play and re-engage with the arts and our lives around us!

Our theme this week is Nostalgia. Take some time to reminisce and throwback to your childhood. Vibe out to some early 2000s classics with this Spotify playlist or get moving to some just dance classics with this playlist. Make some fortunes come true by making a cootie catcher with your friends or swing by arts ambassadors' blast from the past crafternoon for fun times including silly bandz and shrink-a-dinks! Finally, check out dance-mix tomorrow 3/24 at 7pm, free with a passport to the arts! Or check out some nostalgic faves in town, including the Hands-on Museum, Rocket fizz, and the Vault of Midnight.

Send us pictures to @michiganarts on Instagram participating in any of our press play adventures for a chance to be featured <3

Past Resources


This week was all about resetting our minds as we return from a much-needed break. Take time to practice mindfulness with a guided meditation or podcast, take a guided tour of the arb to soak up the sun, and try out bullet journaling for a new and creative way to set goals and relax.


This week’s theme was EXPLORE. Discover new music and travel the world from the comfort of your own home with new playlists and podcasts, hit the town and find all the fairy doors at various locations in town, and whip up something delicious with a new recipe or visiting a new restaurant!
