Unpacking Mutual Aid and Alternative Economies for Detroit Artists

Kresge Arts in Detroit and Sidewalk Detroit have partnered to present a follow up to the 2020 Now:Future virtual performance series. The companion event is a public, 3-day, interactive summit that will explore existing opportunities and new possibilities related to alternative economies and community-based resource creation and sharing within Detroit’s artist community.

Participants will engage with presenters and peers with knowledge and experience spanning mutual aid, intentional communities and land use. Attendees will also have opportunities to define and share their vision, ideas, and experience, while connecting and learning from other artists who are interested in alternative economies.

The summit is free and open to the public, but space is limited.
