Artspace Immersion: Detroit (2021)

Helping turn big ideas into achievable plans


Artspace Immersion is back in Detroit!


After a successful pilot program in 2015, Artspace Immersion is thrilled to announce a second Detroit cohort of 10 arts and cultural organizations selected in November 2019. Artspace Immersion is a 12-month cohort program that celebrates and supports organizations as they build impactful, creative spaces. We welcome these 10 Minneapolis-based creative organizations and businesses to our latest Immersion cohort.


Designed for groups in the planning stages of a space-related initiative, we bring together the people, tools, and access to resources that advance projects big and small. Central to this journey is the support of a learning community, to practice telling their story, build partnerships, and connect their work to broader discussions of community development and social justice.


The cohort includes:

  • Arts & Scraps
  • Detroit Public Theatre
  • Girls Rock Detroit
  • Heritage Works
  • InsideOut Literary Arts
  • Living Arts
  • Plowshares Theatre Company
  • Sidewalk Detroit
  • Signal-Return
  • The Women of Banglatown

The cohort included:

  • The Carr Center
  • Bailey Park Project
  • Arab American National Museum
  • Cooley Reuse Project
  • Allied Media
  • Jefferson East CDC
  • ArtLab J
  • Grandmont Rosedale CDC
  • Young Nation / the Alley Project
  • Spread Art
  • 555 Arts
