Detroit - Mayor’s Advisory Task Force Meeting

Mayor’s Advisory Task Force Meeting
January 24, 6 p.m.
Norwest Activities Center
18100 Meyers Road
Detroit, MI 48235
Upcomming- Next Series of Public Meetings

WHY CHANGE? Most Detroiters feel strongly that we need to change, but what really happens if we don’t? What happens, for example, if we continue to lose 80,000 people in the next decade? Find out during the next round of meetings with the Detroit Works Project.
Come see what’s impacting neighborhoods across the city and give us ideas and information on what you’re already doing to make Detroit work. And, we’ll begin to give you some of the thoughts being discussed to help get us moving in the right direction – both short and long term.
If we all understand the issues and act together we can find the answers for the city.
The conversation topics will be the same for each meeting. Please join the session that’s closest and most convenient for you.

Detroit Creative Corridor Center & Metro Times
"... the story of Detroit’s regeneration in a post industrial economy has really caught the hearts and minds across the globe – it is this interest that has inspired this photo competition and the Spirit of Detroit free exhibition in the heart of London’s West End.

WAN and Buro Happold are asking the 910,000 residents plus millions more friends, visitors and relatives to take a fresh look at that pioneering spirit and to take part in our photo competition. We are asking entrants to join the Spirit of Detroit Facebook page and to upload up to five images, that you either own or have taken and which you believe illustrate ‘The Spirit of Detroit’."

The overall winning image and two runners-up images will be included in The Spirit of Detroit photo exhibition, opening in London on February 9th 2011 in Newman St in London’s West End.

The closing date for entries is Thursday 3rd February, 2011.
