Who we are.
What we try to do.
The mission of the MICDS Arts Council is to encourage advocacy, enhancement, and visibility for the arts. We invest in the arts, both on and off campus, through alumni outreach, marketing, collaboration, and community-based arts events. We pursue this mission through three main channels:
Increasing the prominence of the arts at MICDS, both on and off campus.
This is achieved through social media, online and email marketing, meetings with MICDS administrators and community-based arts events.
Fostering both the artistic growth of MICDS artists and their personal development. Our student formation focuses on an artist’s entire self and is achieved by providing role models through our Arts Awards program, master classes and with professional artists.
Improving opportunities on and off campus include career initiatives that include Career Night for the Arts, networking events with industry specialists and alumni, and arts space advocacy and planning.
