Mariners Inn has a long standing partnership with Wayne State University to bring new ideas, information, and services to our clients through our partnership with their students and various academic programs. One partnership that has been particulary beneficial is our membership in ArtCorpsDetroit.
ArtsCorpsDetroit is a community-based program at Wayne State University that offers service-learning courses and volunteer opportunities for students and others who want to help revitalize the urban community through the arts. ArtsCorpsDetroit is open to all Wayne State University students and also invites participation from the Detroit community.
The development of our Art Therapy Program has been made possible through partnerships like this and art projects including the Road to Recovery mural, weekly Art Therapy didactic, new art studio, and others have been made possible through these projects. In this video you will see Mariners Inn CEO David Sampson discussing the positive impact that art has had on the population that we serve.
