Work On Building Becomes Visible

“Young Nation will engage Southwest Detroit youth, adults, and business owners to lead the transformation of a vacant structure and lot into active sites of cultural and community development. A participatory design and development process will expand The Alley Project at the key neighborhood intersection of Avis and Elsmere.” -Young Nation’s ArtPlace America Grant Request (2015)

This week work on the building became visible from the outside! In 12-14 weeks we’ll be sitting inside looking through pics of when it looked like this and talking about what we all did together to create a new space.

Plans for Elsmere-Avis Shared with Community

Young Nation celebrated with neighbors, friends, and partners on Friday. The plans for the Elsmere-Avis Plaza were shared and feedback was gathered as the project moves closer to beginning construction. Entertainment was provided by Raices Mexicanas, Motor City Rockerz, and DJ Clay and food was provided by Esto’s Garage.
