Each semester, MPOW presents a day-long event for 5th and 6th grade Detroit Public School students on the University of Michigan campus. After witnessing a showcase of arts-based performances by UofM students, the 5th and 6th graders collaborate with university students in original creative expression through a diverse array of performance-based workshops.


In addition to our bi-annual event, MPOW is home to Acting Out!, a puppet troupe that performs an educational show about Shakespeare in Detroit Public Schools.


MPOW is dedicated to bringing free arts programming to Detroit Public Schools. This past year, MPOW collaborated with faculty at the Detroit School of the Arts to start its first weekly theatre workshop. Each week, University of Michigan students travel to Midtown Detroit to explore the boundless possibilities of creative expression with DSA students.

MPOW programming is completely cost-free for participating Detroit Public Schools. MPOW funds its programs through support from various sources at the University of Michigan and the surrounding community. If you would like to support our cause, please visit
