This is a volunteer-driven effort to collect information about Detroit that anybody can freely edit. The idea is to create a space where different things that make the City can live -- historical records, current topics, meeting plans, biographies.

Major Civic Topics

Featured Project: The Detroit Sound Conservancy

You can help conserve Detroit's musical history through physical archiving, digital outreach, and collaborative fundraising.  First and foremost an organizing effort, the DSC’s long-term goal is to become the go-to organization for accurate information and effective strategy in the struggle to increase and maintain Detroit’s capacity to conserve its musical heritage. The DSC imagines gathering oral histories, preserving the written records of Detroit music journalists, encouraging the digitization and dissemination of music-related audio and video, and organizing around historical landmarks and collections critical to telling the story of Detroit music. Your contributions -- pages, photos, stories, and more -- make this possible.
