The Event

Each semester, MPOW presents a day-long event for 5th and 6th grade Detroit Public School students on the University of Michigan campus. After witnessing a showcase of arts-based performances by UofM students, the 5th and 6th graders collaborate with university students in original creative expression through a diverse array of performance-based workshops.

This is an interdisciplinary arts adventure that includes singers, dancers, actors, instrumentalists, and more! MPOW is dedicated to providing youth who have limited creative outlets with exposure to as many aspects of the performing arts as possible.

This special day is completely cost-free for participating Detroit Public Schools. MPOW funds the event through support from various sources at the University of Michigan and the surrounding community.
