In Detroit over 283 public schools have been closed since 2000, causing ongoing instability and chaos in the schooling landscape of the city. Detroit Future Schools collaborated with the citywide education organizing network 482 Forward to create a video for community members that responds to the question: “Who gets to open and close schools in Detroit?”
This spring marks the return of Art X Detroit - a free 10-day arts experience kicking off April 9. The biennial festival, which hosted its inaugural event in 2011, will include dance, music, literary, and theatrical performances featuring Kresge Arts Fellows at over 20 venues throughout Detroit. Allied Media Projects is pleased to be a promotional sponsor of the festival.
