Detroit community dialogue around arts, culture kicks off July 16

Director of Arts and Culture Rochelle Riley to lead discussion in Detroit


Over the years, Detroit has slowly transformed into a blossoming hub of arts and culture.

With more and more galleries beginning to rise and with global phenomenons visiting the towering halls of the Filmore or The Fox, art has become the fabric of the city, connecting both people with each other and the city itself. 

In order to support the vast amount of creatives present in the city, Detroit Director of Arts and Culture Rochelle Riley is visiting each and every district, starting today, July 16, at 6 p.m. in District 2 at the Northwest Activites Center, to talk about arts, culture and entertainment in the city of Detroit. 

Performing artists, art program directors and art lovers alike are encouraged to come out and talk about how the city can support creatives in one the most creative cities in America.
