Passport to the Arts

About

Passport To The Arts is an Arts Initiative program designed 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: A new Passport ticket voucher is created every two weeks during the academic year. Pick up a Passport Voucher at the start of each cycle in one of our pickup locations across campus (see map below). Then pick an arts event from the voucher and exchange it for a FREE ticket by bringing it to the box office or ticketing location, or by following the instructions for registering online! Vouchers are printed and distributed in limited supply, so don't wait until the last minute to pick yours up!

2023 - 2024 Passport Cycles



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.
