Passport to the Arts

About

Passport To The Arts is an initiative to encourage students to explore the arts on campus and around Ann Arbor. We are excited to offer new ways to help you see great arts events and participate in great arts activities!

Here's how it works for the Winter 2021 semester: Select an event from the list below and follow the instructions to score yourself a FREE ticket! Due to COVID precautions, Passport Vouchers will not be distributed in print form this semester.

Getting Featured

Want your event featured on the Passport? We feature local events on our Passport to the Arts vouchers. If you are interested in having your event featured, email us a month or so before your event to let us know you'd be interested. We can't include every event that gets proposed, but we'd love to get some information to see if your event would be a good fit.

Looking For More?

With live arts events looking different this year, the Passport to the Arts program looked different as well. We're currently on break for summer, but plan to have more featured Passport events in the fall! But that doesn't mean you have to stop enjoying Ann Arbor's great arts! Check out some of the local arts venues and institutions that are hosting online and in-person concerts, screenings, exhibitions, performances and other activities-- many for FREE:
