Arts Ambassadors

About

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! Arts Ambassadors are unpaid volunteers who serve as the bridge between the arts and the U-M student body. As an Arts Ambassador you'll learn about the arts both on campus and in the community, meet local artists, and help promote arts events and activities.

Being a part of the Arts Ambassadors student organization is an extremely rewarding and fun experience! As an Arts Ambassador, you will be responsible for attending weekly (virtual) meetings, taking leadership roles in organizing arts events, collaborating with other Arts Ambassadors to engage students in the arts, and most importantly, spreading the word about the vast arts community at U-M!


Last year the Arts Ambassadors provided arts resources for Pressing Pause and taking a break from studying, the pandemic, and all the stress we were feeling. This semester the Arts Ambassadors are back with suggestions on how to Press Play and re-engage with the arts and our new lives around us.

This week’s theme is Explore and Expand. Get out of the house and watch the UMS performance of “SW!NG OUT,” test out newly opened Ann Arbor eatery Condado Taco, traverse the world through the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival, widen your horizons with a Zell Visiting Writers Series reading, and attend the Women’s Glee Club Spring Concert for free with a Passport to the Arts!

Past Resources

Rainy Daze

This week’s theme was Rainy Daze. Prepare for the coming spring with your own handmade propagation station, stream fan-favorite rainy day movies, craft a recycled tote bag out of an old t-shirt, reflect on the weather with our curated Press Playlist, and fold some paper flowers to bloom in the new season.

Rev Up

This week’s theme was Rev Up. Kick off the last leg of the semester with a revitalizing Press Playlist, watch some energizing performances at the annual Dance Mix, tune into a motivational podcast on a local walking trail, and shake off your end-of-semester worries with some online dance workouts.
