As part of the Detroit Design Festival, Collision Works and First Container will be hosting the event:
SEEK EASTERN MARKET
Thursday, September 19th, 2013
7pm – 11pm
2930 Russell Street, Detroit, MI 48207
Experience Eastern Market After Dark, through the stories of the people that live, work, and design there. We will provide a map of the area indicating where you can find stories and you’ll have an opportunity to add yours. We will be sharing these stories by fire barrel and blanket. Any blankets left behind will be donated to COTS (Coalition of Temporary Shelter) as the weather will be getting cooler soon.
What does this have to do with design?
Stories connect us to each other and our communities. Designing social experiences rests on our ability to integrate these stories in our process of discovery, learning, and creating. We have been collecting stories from various businesses and individuals that live, work, and design in the Eastern Market neighborhood and are designing custom “story boxes” to put them in.
Visit first container during DDF and pick up your map, take a self guided tour to learn more about the market to find these stories and then add your own.
