Access to art and cultural experiences is vitally important to quality of life. The arts are a way for Detroiters to connect to each other and the world. The city is home to artists and cultural institutions that have elevated Detroit’s creative spirit for generations. The Hudson-Webber Foundation invests in the capacity of arts and cultural organizations to deliver quality, accessible, and engaging cultural programming, as well as increasing the diversity of voices reflected in the sector.
