Culture Lab Detroit


Culture Lab Detroit, a catalyst for conversations and collaborations between Detroit's artists, designers, technologists, and the larger design world, announces its 2014 program. From April 24 through 26, 2014, Culture Lab Detroit, in partnership with Detroit Creative Corridor Center and the College for Creative Studies, will host its second annual series of events, focused on the theme of regenerative design in urban areas. The events provide intimate opportunities for learning and conversation with internationally recognized design leaders including David Adjaye, Fernando and Humberto Campana, Theaster Gates, and David Stark, with the goal of increasing awareness of Detroit's creative community internationally, and inspiring new projects within the city. Culture Lab Detroit will present multiple events including Art Interventions, a panel discussion between the speakers moderated by David Stark, and In Cahoots, a musical mash-up featuring My Brightest Diamond and Migguel Anggelo, presented in partnership with UMS from Ann Arbor Michigan.

In addition to the public programming mentioned above, Culture Lab Detroit also organizes two private salon dinners to develop deeper relationships between the speakers and Detroit-based innovators; community classes taught by the participating design leaders, focused on specific components of regenerative design; open portfolio reviews for local artists and designers to present their work for critique from the invited speakers.
