Submissions due 11/3/2023 - Application at

Hosted by our Political Artist Meetup, in collaboration with the @work4medte campaign!
After a winter spent paying their shareholders hundreds of millions of dollars and leaving 700k+ Michiganders without power- DTe shouldn’t be allowed to just artwash their image. As artists we demand more for our communities, and refuse to just be used as branding for the rich.
Each artist is encouraged to submit one work that reflects their general practice, and one piece that responds to the extractive role DTE has played in our community.
Our goal is to show the breadth of our skills, and our ability to stand with our communities.
Submissions due 11/3/2023 - Application at
Consider submitting work and come out to the next artist meet up in October!!
