Spring 2022 Biannual Member Meeting


Our Spring 2022 Biannual Member Meeting will take place over five days, from March 21-25.

Practicing our cat cow’s, we’re stretching our biannual member meeting for a whole week. Flexing our adaptive capacity building skills, we’re embracing complexity and shaping our meeting as a series of small experiments with the same goal of sharing knowledge and bringing our members together. Register here to be notified of the upcoming events throughout our week long activation of our members and member locations. 

Monday, 1:00-2:00pm
CEO Call 

via Zoom, with Mariam Noland, Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan
Our region’s arts leaders digitally sit with the founding and outgoing CEO of the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan to glean insights about the future of arts and philanthropy and say thank you.
(Note: We mistakenly put February’s call on the calendar for Monday, 10:00am…it should have been 1:00pm and will be that time moving forward.)

Daily Music Moment 
Live Broadcast
Daily features of music-focused members, including short interviews of curators and curated playlists that inspire you throughout the week.

From the Cutting Edge: Immersive Art & Digital Experience

via Zoom, with Alan Brown of WolfBrown
Commercial ventures are surging investment in live and digital immersive entertainment. How can the nonprofit arts and culture sector keep up? This highly visual hybrid workshop explores the current state and future of immersive entertainment as inspiration and a provocation to make change. Topics include: 

  • Historical perspective on immersive technologies
  • Theoretical underpinnings of the transition from mental immersion to sensory immersion, and from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0
  • Commercial sector adoption of immersive experiences, in fashion, theme parks, public art and real estate development
  • Adoption of immersive formats in the museum field (nonprofit and commercial), and what’s coming post-Van Gogh
  • Immersive practices in the performing arts, live and digital

Thursday, 1:00-3:00pm
Grab a coffee on us!
We’re partnering with three local coffee shops who are helping us encourage our members to take a coffee or tea break and have the opportunity to bump into each other or CultureSource staff! CultureSource members can stop by, meet up with a friend or two, and get a cup of coffee on us! On Thursday from 1 – 3 p.m., our members can visit lab in Ann Arbor, Narrow Way Cafe in Detroit, and Alley Cat Cafe in Pontiac, for a quick coffee to go or longer break to share with another CultureSource member! Once registered, we’ll send along a special phrase to mention to the barista for a free coffee.
