Arts Ambassadors


The Arts Ambassadors student organization serves as the bridge between the arts and the University of Michigan Central and North Campus student population. This organization creates opportunities for students to explore, appreciate, and create various forms of art. We’re looking for enthusiastic and friendly students who have an interest in the arts that they want to share! Being a part of the Arts Ambassadors student organization is an extremely rewarding, engaging, and fun experience! Active members can expect to participate in regular meetings and events, and contribute to our biweekly Press Play feature in the Arts at Michigan newsletter. You will 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 provide biweekly suggestions on how to Press Play and engage with the arts through something to listen to, something to make, and somewhere to go.

This week's Press Play theme is Lucky You! Get some free food, learn Irish dance moves, and hunt for prizes at St Patrick’s Day at the Union 3/16 from 6-8 PM. Get in the St Patty's spirit at home with this copycat Shamrock Shake recipe, or use these gratitude journal prompts to feel as lucky as a four-leaf clover! Lastly, watch this Ted Talk on Creating your Own Luck, or for a throwback movie, check out Luck of the Irish on Disney+. The Arts Ambassadors wish you a happy St Patrick's Day and invite you to share how you're celebrating @michiganarts on Instagram.

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

Past Resources


Our theme this week was Nostalgia. Take some time to reminisce and throwback to your childhood.


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.
