Happy Holidays from TheDetroiter.com!


Happy Holidays from TheDetroiter.com! As we go into this long holiday weekend, we reflect on this past year and our hopes for TheDetroiter.com. We have hit some of our goals, and there has been a lot of momentum and energy behind TheDetroiter to see it grow and better serve the creative community. As always, we need your help! Please let us know about events, and let us know if you or anyone you know is interested in writing for us.

As you may know, TheDetroiter.com is affiliated with the YMCA’s Y-Arts program. Y-Arts is the arts and humanities branch of Detroit’s YMCA. It provides various art classes for kids and adults, which range from ceramic classes to theatre classes. Starting next year, we will start to use our affiliation with Y-Arts more. First, we will host a regular lecture series at the Y-Arts theatre in the Boll Family YMCA in Harmonie Park. Second, we will curate a couple shows at the YMCA next year. Third (and last for now, but there will be more to come), we will work with Y-Arts to create TheDetroiter.com T-shirts, so you can ware your support for us on your sleeve.

Additionally, October 2012 will mark the 10 year anniversary of TheDetroiter.com. So throughout October 2012 we will celebrate TheDetroiter.com. We will host roundtable discussions that cover art criticism and the arts in Detroit. We will curate an art show at the Accelerator Gallery at the Detroit Creative Corridor Center. That show will include some of our favorite local artists and some artists from New York City, and in December 2012 the show will travel to NYC. We will also publish our first e-book, which will highlight TheDetroiter.com’s first 10 years and set goals and make predictions about TheDetroiter.com’s and Detroit’s next 10 years.

If you are not a subscriber to TheDetroiter.com, you should subscribe and receive our weekly newsletter. Starting in 2012, the weekly newsletter will include some information not found on our website.

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to all the great things to come!
