Detroit's Creative Community

Detroit Community 3

The community of artists and designers in Detroit is growing at a historically rapid rate. There are many factors driving this momentum including affordable living and studio spaces, diverse cultural events, an increase in employment opportunities for creatives and a tight-knit community of established artists that offers support, advice and insight into our multifaceted city.

Detroit is building its reputation as a hotbed for aspiring artists and designers. The College for Creative Studies (CCS) is right in the middle of all of this. Located in midtown Detroit, CCS students have the ability to engage in the creative community that literally encompasses the campus. It seems like every day CCS is learning about new galleries, art programs, collectives and initiatives that our alumni are starting. Some of those initiatives and collectives include:
