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.”

That’s how the FDNC describe themselves! You can tell , simply by watching their videos how passionate the citizens of Detroit are!

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.”
