The coalition of Concerned Citizens of Detroit

Here at Revin’Up Detroit, we’re always trying to let people know what Detroit is all about and what “fuels” the severely battered city. In this particular case it is the courage to speak and to come together when times are at their worst.

Free Detroit No Consent is a coalition of concerned citizens from Detroit whom are rallied against the loss of voice and services for Detroiters. We desire transparency in our government. We demand the right to participate in government as offered through the US Constitution, its amendments, the Michigan Constitution, and the City of Detroit Home Rule Charter.”

Art where you least expect it!

The Heidelberg Project is a unique platform for artists, creative minds or just ordinary citizens of Detroit. Its “rainbow-like” painted houses and “shopping-cart” decorated trees are only a few of the organizations many creative ideas!

“It’s an open-air art environment in the heart of an urban community on Detroit’s East Side. Tyree Guyton, founder and artistic director, uses everyday, discarded objects to create a two block area full of color, symbolism, and intrigue. Now in its 28th year, the Heidelberg Project is recognized around the world as a demonstration of the power of creativity to transform lives.”

Over the past decades Detroit has become known as the crime city, with bad police response and an even worse infrastructure. What used to be the motorcity, the automotive capitol of the world has slowly turned into a city consisting of abandoned ruins,a shrinking population and streets polluted with stacked tires and trash. But is that really what Detroit is all about these days? How can a once prospering metropolis turn into a bunch of moldy homes with a battered reputation.

The best way to find out is to ask the people of Detroit themselves, what happened to the city, what caused the downfall and how do they cope with it. But REVIN’UP DETROIT is not aimed at exposing Detroit’s dark past, but its bright, prosperous future. We believe that it’s the people who reflect the true heart of a city, so let’s find out what the folks from motown have to say about their city.

We want you to tell your story, simply by sending us articles, images or selfshot videos, in which you explain what Detroit means to you and where the city’s future lies.

Let’s show the world that Detroit is not just a hopeless pile of memories and false investments, but a town that still shelters thousands of families with hopes for a comeback of their beloved city!
