Detroit, MI, October 6-7, 2016 – ArtChangeUS REMAP: Detroit was the third in a series of convenings reframing the national arts conversation by responding to the demographic transformation of America and the vital role of the arts. The theme of ArtChangeUS REMAP: Detroit, “Majority/Majority: We Remap the U.S.” recognizes Detroit as a city that represents a shifting paradigm and dynamic cultural leadership. Detroit is the U.S. city with the highest percentage of African Americans, the largest concentration of Arab Americans, founded on Anishinaabe land, and with an historic and growing state-wide Latinx population.
ArtChangeUS REMAP: Detroit was produced in partnership with the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures’ NALAC MI Latinx Art Summit, the Arab American National Museum, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History (The Wright), Complex Movements, and Creative Many. ArtChangeUS is a project of the California Institute of the Arts.
