Access to art and cultural experiences is vitally important to quality of life. From boom times to bankruptcy, the arts have always been a way for Detroiters to connect to each other and the world, as well as a key to improving our communities. The city is home to arts and cultural institutions that have elevated Detroit’s creative spirit for generations, as well as emerging organizations that bring fresh perspectives and experiences. Hudson-Webber 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. The Foundation also supports arts and culture projects that contribute to the health and vitality of Detroit and its neighborhoods.
