Community-rooted neighborhood revitalization

Supported by ArtPlace, Create Northeast Detroit (Create NED) is a partnership between Restore NED, Allied Media Projects, and The Work Department. Create NED will activate residents to utilize art, design, and technology to make their neighborhood visions tangible and shareable with the broader public. Our goal is to present a vision for the community's development that may be incorporated into the City of Detroit’s Master Plan.

The Create NED project aims to:

  • Use art, design, and technology to make residents’ land use visions for the future of District 3 tangible and accessible to the public in digital and physical forms.
  • Implement art and landscape architecture "demonstration projects" in three city parks.
  • Produce community festivals to showcase the completed projects, highlight local artists, and engage City officials.
  • Distribute seed grants for resident-led green space beautification projects throughout the District.
