Uncovered Discussion Series : Art the Community : Detroit

  • husART Design Collective 1800 W 21st St Chicago, IL, 60608 United States (map)

In short: focused conversational pot luck!

Our inaugural Uncovered Discussion Series serial “Art Shaped Community” looks at relationships between growing communities within Chicago, Gary, and Detroit. We will investigate what challenges face each of these cities and how particular neighborhoods have responded and thrived. Within this conversation will be central themes of gentrification, dealing with abandoned properties, and questions of what makes healthy communities.

Our final evening of the series will focus on Detroit and how the city has survived and even begun to thrive through its 2013 bankruptcy. 

Bring a dish and choice beverage to share and come ready with questions or thoughts on what makes a community.

The evening will be hosted by Meegan Czop, Materials Buyer ReBuilding Exchange
Sarah Mellen, Founder The Jack and The Ace
