The Detroit-Berlin Connection is holding the Second Annual Conference on May 20, 2015 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) starting at 4pm. This event is designed to challenge traditional views and boundaries in reaching new horizons and possibilities in Detroit, while involving community organizers and stakeholders, entrepreneurs, artists, and individuals from various backgrounds.
The program will include presentations by organizations involved in art, music, design and entrepreneurial efforts in both cities. A panel discussion and a Q&A session will follow along with a cocktail afterglow, when the public can mingle with the speakers.
Our mission is to intensify cultural exchange between Detroit and Berlin and to stimulate creative economic growth in Detroit while using nontraditional tactics which helped Berlin’s transformation. Our goal is to start meaningful and interactive conversations that will further the City of Detroit: cultivate diversity, encourage tourism, foster commerce, and nurture inclusiveness.
Doors will open at 3:30pm. General admission tickets will guarantee entry into this event. Seating will be available on a first come, first served basis.
