The decision will make room for a larger-scale "arts-infused community" called Heidelberg 3.0.
However improbable it might have seemed twenty, five, or even two years ago, Detroit could well be on the verge of a major turnaround that could make it one of the biggest success stories in urban America over the next decade.
there certainly is a perpetual cycle of hopelessness in the Heidelberg Community, but Tyree says it's deeper than that. I know what he means: Detroit is a microcosm for the world, but change for many is scary and sometimes violent, as we have recently witnessed with the fires.
They come to take part in the dream of turning what's ordinary into greatness, to turn an abandoned school gym into an environment for creativity, collaboration, and inspiration. If that isn't art, I don't know what is.
The last fire was on Thanksgiving, destroying "The War Room." At the time, security guards saw a man in dark clothing running
This fire was indeed set intentionally, the second “suspicious fire” targeting the OJ House installation in six months. Unfortunately
Now please, dear Detroit, let me say at the outset that I totally fell in love with you. I wish only good things for you. My love is pure, but like a mother's love, it comes with some critical feedback.
Detroit -- I have discovered through my research -- is in Michigan. Quoth current Michigan Governor Rick Snyder: "I know many will see this as a low point in the city's history. If so, I think it will also be the foundation of the city's future." Good perspective.
We're spreading toxicity around the planet and into the atmosphere not simply by overconsumption, greed and carelessness but also by a fundamental failure to value all of life.
