[Activated Performance Hours: Wednesday, September 21, 6-8 pm Thursday, September 22, 6-8 pm, Fridays and Saturdays (12-8 pm), Sundays (12-4 pm) ] **Pitch Night Durham Grant** What is the current state of civil rights in your country? Do you feel protected and supported by the laws enacted by your government? Artist Stacey L. Kirby offers The Bureau of Personal Belonging as a setting for such dialogue about community, civil rights and belonging. Over the past 9 years, 115 performances and over 3000 participants, Kirby has shared a series of “performative interactions” – performances set within site-specific installations that are activated by viewer participation. The Bureau is an installation comprised of three ongoing works, The Declaration Project, VALIDnation and her newest work, I AM. Visitors offer written and verbal response as they interact with Kirby and performers from Grand Rapids. Kirby critically examines governmental process and legislation (North Carolina's HB2 and Michigan's SB993 & HB5717) while imploring us to trust in the validity of our own voices and our power to make an impact on the governing bodies that shape our communities.

Largely through the efforts of the Michigan First Foundation, we donated more than $150,000 to nonprofits and scholarships last year. Locally, we proudly support Goodwill, Helen DeVos Children's Hostpital Foundation, Gilda’s Club, Police Unity Tour, GrandJazzFest, Movers for Moms, Karin’s Hope Foundation, Grand Rapids Parks & Recreation and more. We are the official Credit Union of the Detroit Red Wings and a proud partner of the Grand Rapids Griffins and West Michigan Whitecaps.

Crossroads Bible Church is located on the near northwest side of the city near the Grand River, parks and the fish ladder. A former warehouse space, this venue provides a blank canvas of sorts with large, open interior wall space as well as outdoor space for art pieces. This venue sits at the intersection of the Westside neighborhood and downtown. Acting as a second year venue, we hope to build on the momentum that was formed last year of bringing artists and art-enthusiasts into our space. Plenty of FREE Parking available.

We are centrally located downtown on Fulton, just east of Division. We are a large and beautiful historic church. The entrance to the parking lot is off Ransom Street, next to St. Cecilia's. Last year we added a glass vestibule as our new entry right off our parking lot. We have a new lobby and gathering area, gallery hallway, and ceramic floor tile from Italy. Our main hall, Merriam Hall, hosts great pieces and displays.
