POp-UP PARLOR FOR URBAN EXCHANGE

SIX MILE, DETROIT, DECEMBER 2016

Could we do a pop-up parlor for the On the Ground project? Sure, why not. On a snowy evening in December, we transformed a storefront on Six Mile into a speakeasy for urban exchange. We packed & moved our parlor up from Midtown, and we invited some friends in Chicago & Philadelphia to join us. They shared their work, we took notes & asked questions. We'd do it again minus the freezing temps. With thanks to Live6 Alliance, Model D Media, Patrick Thompson Design, Detroit Collaborative Design Center, Detroit Sip, Axle Brewing Company, Detroit City Distillery, Knight Foundation & Kresge Foundation.
