Humans of Belle Isle

Everett and I first started our project with a pretty simple goal in mind: how do we spend the summer of months outside? Don’t get eitther of us wrong – we love a good community focused challenge. Yet, both of us being more inclined to get our hands dirty than sit at a desk, we […]

Embracing Humility in an Evolving Detroit Landscape

I’ve recently taken up climbing/bouldering. For those unfamiliar, climbing is a fast growing sport of its own, both indoor and outdoor, in which the climber navigates a series of holds and movements to reach the top of a set route. At its most basic form, you essentially grab a rope, tie it to your waste, […]

Tips for a Successful Project – 5 Tips Every Future Fellow Should Know

Challenge Projects are part, well, challenging, two parts frustrating, and, when executed well, inevitably rewarding. Regardless of their background, all fellows go through a learning curve on how to most efficiently tackle the topics we are asked to address during the course of our Challenges, especially while still acting within the required Design Thinking Framework. […]

Nonprofit Oversaturation

The last few months have allowed a deep dive into Detroit’s nonprofit landscape, with a special focus on many of the smaller nonprofits concentrated in the Detroit area. Lots of people are trying to do a lot of good – the result? A bit of a mixed bag.

Talking with coworkers and friends in the for-profit […]

Pictures from CD

Challenge Detroit has given me the opportunity to get back into a slowly unveiling passion of mine – journalism and photography. While I studied and would like to think myself relatively decent at the first, the second has been a work in progress. Recently, I went out west and was happy to realize that, due […]

Spring Thaw Musings

I hate the winter. Yea, I’m a lifelong Michigander, sure. But I still have absolutely no love for any kind of cold, snow, ice, or the inevitable mix of the three. So, a few days ago, some Challenge Detroiters excitedly took to our Group Chat to exclaim “ALERT: Three days of Sun in a row!”. […]

Navigating Place (and Race) in Detroit: From Neighborhoods to Midtown

A couple days ago, I was asked where I liked living better – off of 7 Mile (I lived at two different spots close to 7 and Wyoming for in the past year and a half), or my current spot – a remodeled Textile Manufacturing Warehouse off of Trumbull and 94. At the time, it […]

Pistons, the Palace, and the Potential Effects of Branding Detroit as a Sports City

A bit over a month ago, the Pistons made the news by (finally) announcing their move Downtown, part of partnership between the Ilitch Family and Tom Gores. As a basketball fan and (to my own dismay as of late) a Pistons fan, I’m ecstatic. Hockey, Basketball, and Football all within walking distance? Sign me up. […]

This is Us

 

I spent the majority of the election results coverage drinking beers with a long lost friend in Seattle, Washington. Like many, we started by joking about the possibility as our future President elect lurked ever forwards in his projections. We kept at it, a gentle buzz setting in, clouding the ever growing legitimacy. Then, Like […]

Detroit Education’s Cyclical Cynicism

Disclaimer: As a Private School student in high school and then an educator at a Detroit Private School last year, I’m woefully ignorant when it comes to the discourse surrounding Detroit Education. Lately, I’ve been interested in learning more and, more importantly, inspiring others to do the same.  Check out some of my initial “gut thoughts” […]
