ReImagine Washtenaw Project: Arts Alliance
The Arts Alliance would like to partner with your organization to host a community gathering. The purpose of this gathering is to share opinions, discuss ideas, and collect information from residents of Pittsfield Township, Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township. The information being collected relates to public art as a part of the Reimagine Washtenaw Corridor project. A community gathering would ideally be hosted at your location, involve 8-10 participants and meet for about 90 minutes.
Public Art Survey
Participate in a survey about art in your community; anyone can participate. Arts Alliance will monitor the feedback over the course of development of the arts plan to determine how attitudes and awareness are changing. The goal of ReImagine Washtenaw is to create a transit corridor that enhances quality of place, supports efficient movement, and encourages private investment in the Washtenaw Corridor that runs from Ann Arbor to Ypsilanti.
