Detroit is an area that is overrun by so much crime and community detachment. The Heidelberg Project allows for community members to use creative skills to make connections with others, solve problems, and help construct not destruct their own environment. The process of using objects that have been disposed of and bringing them back to life in a completely new form could be used as a metaphor for lessons that the participants could be learning in society.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Bring deceased areas of Detroit back to life with residencies, studios, classes, and workshops for the creative community.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
