OUR CURRENT PROJECTS
The best thing about Detroit is it's vast opportunity. This is a unique time and place, where vision meets affordability. Our current focus is to complete the transformation of a corner lot into a community pocket park. We have been maintaining the lot to date by keeping it trimmed and cleared of trash. Soon we are going to finish turning what was once an eyesore into a pleasant space for residents of all ages.The park will serve as a community gathering space -- for PLAY, EXPLORATION, and LEARNING -- even relaxation for adults! Creating Space Detroit believes that you shouldn't have to leave your neighborhood to have a safe place to gather.
WHAT'S NEXT? We are also working to purchase and rehabilitate a blighted structure in the Bagley area to repurpose it into a neighborhood center where residents can reserve meeting room space, convene groups, and attend classes. Threaded through each of our projects will be a strong element of art and design, an effort to use local resources, and a commitment to environmentally conscious practices. We will draw from the community for its talent and plan to give back via employment and educational opportunities.
