Thank you to everyone who participated in our website co-design sessions and surveys earlier this spring! Thanks to your input, we've put together a request for proposals (RFP) for a rebuilt, redesigned alliedmedia.org to support the breadth and depth of all things Allied Media.

At the intersection of Grand River Ave. and 15th Street in Detroit’s Core City neighborhood, there is a four-story brick building covered in murals. The most prominent one, spanning the top half of the front facade, is of four hands shaping the letters L-O-V-E. For nearly 20 years, this building was a home for artists and small businesses. Through low-cost studio space, gallery space, and community, it nurtured a kind of creative love, the impact of which is visible along Grand River, and will be felt for many more decades.
