This is the new Detroit

The New Detroit2



Detroit is building its reputation as a global center for innovation, and CCS is right in the middle of it. Located in the heart of Detroit's Innovation District, CCS students have the ability to engage in the creative community that encompasses campus. It seems that every day CCS learns about our alumni involved in starting new galleries, art programs, collectives, businesses and initiatives.

Detroit is a city that inspires its inhabitants and allows them to make change

Creative entrepreneurship is not only welcomed in Detroit, it's fostered. There are more than 50 programs within our city that were developed to nurture startups. These programs offer assistance to new business owners as they navigate the sometimes intimidating world of business ownership. Some of these programs include:

  • DC3 (Detroit Creative Corridor Center) - operated by and housed at CCS
  • Hatch Detroit
  • D:hive
  • Invest Detroit
  • Detroit Soup
  • Detroit Venture Partners
  • Artifact Maker Society
