This online course will examine the critical role the arts—particularly the arts in Detroit—have played in historical times of crisis as well as consider how the arts might help us now in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic. How can art help us heal, decrease anxiety, generate interconnection, and build stronger, more resilient communities? And how can we, as a virtual community, strive to meet these goals throughout our 7 weeks separate yet together? Join us as we learn from the resilience of Detroit artists and celebrate the power of the arts to mend, heal, and revitalize in life’s darkest moments.
This course was originally created as a part of the curriculum for the U-M Semester in Detroit Program. While Semester in Detroit will not be running this spring, this online course will still be offered and is open to any U-M undergraduate student.
