We are Michigan House.

We’re artists and musicians. We’re dynamic companies and transformational organizations. We’re thought leaders. We’re organizers.We’re teachers.We’re policy-makers.We’re stakeholders all – in a state and a story.

Through conversation, art, music, food, drink, and much much more – we come together to create a living, breathing experience that defies expectations.

Michigan House is a pop-up activation space that for three years has brought the creativity and vitality of the Great Lake State to the national stage. In March of 2018, we go back to SXSW. We’re bringing more voices. More expertise. More diversity of opinion, background, and point of view.
