Artist Jonah Welch has a message for Detroit: Trans people are sacred.
The message sits on a billboard — Welch’s first installment — on East Seven Mile and Kempa Street in the Sherwood neighborhood, and was curated by Detroit artists Ellen Rutt, Playground Detroit, and Save Art Space.
The City of Detroit and ARISE Detroit! are partnering for a free one-day Neighborhood Film Festival, spotlighting people and organizations working to improve Detroit neighborhoods.
The festival will feature three short documentaries, including one 2018 Emmy winner, produced by The Neighborhoods, and the ARISE Detroit! documentary, “The City The Heart The Hope.”
The festival will be held from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 27, at the Bel Air Luxury Cinema, 10100 Eight Mile Road in Detroit.
At The Neighborhoods, we’re interested in hearing from everybody in Detroit about what matters most to you.
