NOW:FUTURE Artist Summit

Kresge Arts in Detroit and Sidewalk Detroit have partnered to present 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.

Attendees will have opportunities to define and share their vision, ideas, and experience while connecting and learning from other artists who are interested in alternative economies.
