What is a healthy and strong community?
Our guiding approach: Healing ourselves and healing our communities.
Individuals understanding self-worth and personal value and can express it in productive ways (i.e. gardening, painting, organizing, singing, writing).
Individuals developing meaningful relationships with folks in their communities and can support each other.
Individuals learning how systems and institutions impact the quality of life in their communities.
Individuals collaborating with like-minded folks and working to make a difference through advocacy or volunteer work.
Individuals and organizations working in partnership to co-create resolutions to pressing challenges in the community.
How It Works
An archive of conversations
“Millennial Response to “Two Detroits? Gentrification” panel discussion”
Can we point to clear examples of gentrification in Detroit? What kind of effects does gentrification have on disenfranchised communities?
“What is your social conviction?”
What do you firmly believe to be true about social justice movements in Detroit?
“Drama + Discussion”
A conversation about strength through vulnerability.
“Rhythm & Race, part I”
Race alone is enough to make your heart skip a beat and your palms sweat; it’s a tough topic to explore. one way to start healing ourselves and our communities is to be open to discussion on race.
“Rhythm & Race, part II”
a talk about existential issues related to race: (a) privilege, guilt and awareness, (b) cultural appropriation versus adaptation and (c) acceptance and inclusion.
“Vulnerable in Detroit”
After reviewing the dehumanizing process of home foreclosure, how might the community support those affected?
