Grand Rapids is a beautiful town with a river running through it and a thriving public art scene. ArtPrize is a galvanizing force in this regard and now attracts over 500,000 visitors a year, leaving a legacy of lots of public art. We’ll have a self-guided public art tour to engage you on Friday night and a workshop on how your station can help activate public art spaces and spur arts and culture as economic drivers in your communities.
Grand Rapids Community Media Center is a multi-platform media and technology assistance organization whose mission is to build community through media. It is home to member station and summit host WYCE (88.1 FM), Wealthy Theater, the Rapidian, and GRTV.
Our summit will be held at Wealthy Theater near downtown Grand Rapids. Tours of WYCE and GRTV at the Media Center will also be offered.
