Reestablishing Art as Civic Experience
theR.A.C.E. is a
that is part-community event, part-town hall, and part-play exploring what democracy and civic leadership really mean to Detroiters, beyond the stump speeches and spin.
A professional ensemble of Detroit-based artists are spending August and September engaging in meaningful, place-based (and joyful!) civic conversations with communities across the city.
From those conversations, we'll create a unique theatrical experience leading up to, on, and following the Nov 3rd Election.
This is a multi-pronged exploration, discovery, call, and response about what Detroit has, wants, and needs from local and national civic leaders leading up to, on, and after the Presidential Election.
NOW through November 2020
