What do you like to document about your world? or city?

Truth. I came to Detroit because of my career and although I adore this city and am constantly shelling out positive stories for my publications, I do feel like there is a sense of denial. Detroit hasn't been the easiest place to live BUT that isn't due to the stereotypical reasons the national media portrays. I would like to initiate a real discussion that explores local entrepreneurs' and artists' fear of criticism, competition and new-to-Detroit residents.

    Amelia! I agree with Brandon and just want to offer any help if you need any.

  • Hey Amelia - I'll be interested to see what you document. I have been thinking about moving to Detroit for probably the same reasons that the other 30-something-year-old migrants do... but need to gut check the reality vs. the dream. I'm really excited to have such a great Local Producer (Stephen McGee) helping walk that line for this community.
