Convening

CultureSource connects people, organizations and ideas.
We are at our best when we work with partners and as connectors and instigators. This is written into the CultureSource Guiding Principles and is core to our being as a membership organization.
Through regular professional development and leadership convenings both virtual and in-person we bring people, organizations, and ideas together to build skills and collaboration that will ensure our vision of a flourishing cultural sector in Southeast Michigan. Some convening initiatives include biannual member meetings; monthly workshops; Senior Staff Calls; and equity-focused programs, such as CultureMakers, a program for young leaders of color that aims to explore contemporary practices in the arts and shift dominant narratives about culture.

CultureSource gets funding to people and organizations.
A solid financial core is essential to our capacity to serve. This is written into the CultureSource Guiding Principles and is core to our efforts to serve. Through funding, regranting and fiscal sponsorship initiatives, we collaborate with partners to expediently provide needed funding to bring people, organizations, and ideas that will support our vision of a flourishing cultural sector in Southeast Michigan and beyond. We are often a regrantor of funds, a high-touch grantmaker, or a fund manager or advisor. Some funding initiatives include Michigan Council of Arts and Cultural Affairs regranting; CulturePop; Creators of Culture; and fiscal sponsorship of Concert of Colors, Detroit’s 26-year-running arts festival.

CultureSource initiates research to advance the cultural sector.
We must embrace contemporary culture at its core and edges. This is written into the CultureSource guiding principles and is core to our efforts to provide timely and relevant research to understand the core being of our field as well as the newest advancements that are not yet understood. We regularly engage in practices of research and learning in order to build field knowledge and enhance our work of convening and grantmaking. We are a partner of the Arts, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Lab at Indiana University Bloomington, in addition to maintaining relationships with arts research firms locally and nationally.
