The Michigan Performance Outreach Workshop (MPOW) is a student organization at the University of Michigan dedicated to sharing the positive powers of the performing arts to inspire youth in Detroit. Through arts-based collaboration, MPOW provides a mutually beneficial environment: University students can exercise creative leadership skills in an educational outreach setting, while Detroit Public School students explore possibilities in higher education by building relationships to the University and its students at large. MPOW hopes to foster creative expression, build self-esteem, and strengthen the community.
Each semester, MPOW presents a day-long event for ~180 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.
