    • I will send you an invitation to become a blog contributor right now. Once you accept and link or create your wordpress account you will be able submit articles, media, links, etc. and we will approve them promptly.

      We are anti-censorship, so unless you try to post something illegal or defamatory we will most likely approve it.

  3. Arts and Culture Contribute $100 Million to the Ann Arbor Economy! Imagine if DHS where to capitalize on 1 percent of those numbers. It may take a couple of years, but I believe we can do it!

  5. My husband and I just bought a home in Desert Hot Springs and will be moved in by mid January. I am a “budding” artist and look foward to what this organization will offer for locals.
