Today’s story comes from Dorothy. She talks about how Detroit is on the rise and offers her reasons for why that’s so. We completely agree with her. This was filmed as part of the Detroit Stories Project through the Detroit Works Project. The people that made our kickstarter video also have been documenting Detroiters since last year and creating these beautiful short films that catch the spirit of this Detroit moment. We are talking now with the filmmakers about ways we could permanently house this collection.
A month ago the NYT mentioned us on a front page story about Development in Detroit and quoted us as saying that while we were building a hotel, we are also creating a museum or a library. And we are. And you can be a part of it. That’s my hope.
Thanks Spirit of Space for collecting these stories, editing them beautifully, and allowing us to share them.
