AMP SEED SERIES: HOOD WORK: NEIGHBORHOOD AS RESISTANCE
Thursday, July 13, 7PM
Admission: $10 suggested donation. Free for MOCAD members.
From Southwest to 7 Mile, the hood is driving the city’s cultural renaissance while carrying the heavy burdens of community disinvestment, trauma, and violence. How can we center and uplift neighborhood-rooted artists of color and redistribute the resources needed for these communities to thrive? Hear from Asia Hamilton of Norwest Gallery, Bryce Detroit of New Center, and Tyree Guyton of the Heidelberg Project as they discuss how they’re proudly creating from the hoods of our city while resisting gentrification and erasure with creativity, innovation, and community care. The conversation will be moderated by artist Scheherazade Washington Parrish.
AMP SEED SERIES:
SELECT THURSDAYS, 7PM
We are thrilled to partner with Allied Media Projects for their first in-person Seeds Series as they continue their mission of rooting in Detroit. This season they celebrate how we care for our bodies, our neighbors, and our communities through the mediums of dance, film, food, and visionary organizing as we collectively model more creative and liberated futures.
