ActiveArt, an art and health challenge

Green. Blue. Gold. Yellow. Pink.

These are the colors that fill the trunk of my car. That stain the threads of new white jeans. That fly through the air to land on a clean, fresh, canvas.

In partnership with Dr. Asha Shajahan, of Beaumont Family Medicine, we built a public health campaign of sorts. It was the kind of […]

A Gecko in Detroit

If you’re anything like me, you find any excuse for a sun spot in your living room to soak up the rays during the summer. If you aren’t in a lazy mood, you’ll venture onto your (nonexistent) balcony or out to the balconies attached to bars and restaurants. You may even be so bold as to […]

Summer is Coming

Gooooood morning, Detroit! This month, when my alarm went off at 5:30 in the morning (okay, fine, 6—er, 6:30), the sun was streaming over the top of my unfinished bedroom wall, pouring in from the wall of windows in my lofted living room. And I’m that much readier to face the day, the day that […]

Living Local

Last weekend was the annual Flower Day at Eastern Market, one of the Detroit activities that rings in the warmer weather — or so I heard. Held the weekend after Mother’s Day, vendors come from Michigan, Ontario, and everywhere surrounding and in-between to share their unique flora. And there were so many plants there that […]

Detroit Policy Conference

The Detroit Regional Chamber hosted their sixth Detroit Policy Conference on March 2, 2017 at the MotorCity Casino Hotel in downtown Detroit. This year’s conference focused on the rapid development in Detroit, highlighting the city’s innovative spirit, the benefits of and need for cross-sector collaboration, and the changemakers who are paving the way for development […]

A Million in 8: Sounds of Detroit

In my (nearly) eight months of living in Detroit, I have had the distinct pleasure of attending more music and art events than I’ve attended…in my life? Is that possible?!

With the art scene rich, and the venues aplenty, not a day goes by without a performance here in the city. I believe that on any […]

A Night in Red

I stumbled onto the bus and looked up to face a sea of red, red hats, red scarves, red jerseys. Little snippets of white peaked out here and there. I pulled my coat closer around me and walked towards the back of the bus, sliding into an empty seat with that old leather smell. As […]

Define “recycle.”

What’s the first thing you do when you move into a new place?

That’s right. Tear through your boxes, eager to find every plate, every book, a new home in your new home. Tissue paper flies. Bubble wrap pops. Boxes flatten. Until, finally, you’re left with a huge pile of recyclables on your living room floor — […]

A Very Merry Detroit

This was my first holiday season in the D.  I love walking through Campus Martius; it’s been full of life since the tree lighting, families flying over the ice in the rink and sipping hot cocoa in the ringside cafe. On New Year’s Eve, downtown was crowded with Detroiters and suburbanites alike waiting to ring […]

Well, it’s not so foreign, after all.

I can officially say I’ve been in Detroit now for six weeks, but I feel like I’ve been here for six years. Not because I know everything there is to know about Detroit; I don’t even have a favorite bar or grocery store yet. It’s because there’s something so familiar in this city that is […]
