We are Michigan House

Sure, we’re a house, but we’re so much more—a stage, a story, a home, a gallery, a movement, a purpose—and the list goes on.

We’re a roving pop-up space that travels from city to city to bring the best parts of Michigan to the rest of the world. We partner with what we believe are Michigan’s most dynamic organizations and individuals, and we let them tell their stories—whether it’s a brand, a product, a confession, a song, an idea, a mission, a meal, or a piece of art, Michigan House provides an interactive platform to show people what Michigan’s all about.

An experiment in collaboration and design, Michigan House seeks out vital cultural events and locations where we can transport this living, breathing experience of an authentic Michigan that boldly defies Rust Belt expectations.
