"What Had Happened Was"...a night of storytelling and illustration

Hosted by Detroit History Club
42.00-- To purchase tickets visit: http://www.detroithistoryclub.com/events/what-had-happened-wasa-night-of-storytelling-and-illustration

Someone starts talking about a memory, a story, a person of inspiration. Beers get opened. An artist grabs a pen and flips open his sketch pad. People laugh, they cry, they learn. Poems are written, paintings are made, and our history comes alive for a moment. It becomes a tangible baton that is passed from person to person and in those moments Detroit shines. The Detroit History Club is proud to present "What Had Happened Was"...a night of storytelling and illustration. 
Join us at Hamtramck’s Bank Suey for a spectacular night of learning and entertainment. You'll be greeted with popcorn and Faygo pop. This is a BYOB event - You are welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverages if you choose. Once the lights dim our epic lineup of Detroit noteables will take to the stage to deliver the stories that inspire, remind, and entertain them. As they speak Detroit illustrator, professor, and history buff David Chow will draw illustrations of their stories live. You'll see the stories come to life as the collaboration of visual and spoken history storytelling merge. We can promise laughs, learning, and a peek into what historians do when no one is looking. We hope you'll grab a cocktail and join us.
Because The Detroit History Club operates as a members-only club, out of private homes, hidden spaces, and secret locations, you’ll need to join before being able to buy tickets to events.  At checkout you’ll be asked if you are already a member; if not, select “New Member.” Membership to The Detroit History Club is five dollars per calendar year.  Each person attending an event must have a membership of their own.  Membership cards may be picked up at the first event you attend as a new member, and new cards are issued at the first event you attend each year.  Detroit History Club events are for persons twenty-one years old and up. We drink, we swear, we talk about things, and we’d love for you to join us. Whether you come as a couple, a group, or a singleton, our events are designed to encourage you to make new friends, explore ideas, and learn- all while eating, drinking, dancing, and generally behaving in a way that makes us proud to call ourselves Detroiters.

Potluck & Article Club: How Do We Keep Cities Affordable?

Potluck & Article Club: How Do We Keep Cities Affordable?

Hosted by Muslim-Jewish Forum of Detroit

"You are all invited to our first article club (rather than book club) and facilitated discussion. I think for many people involved in the forum, the topic of urban revival and how can we keep major cities like Detroit affordable, inclusive, and desegregated is one that is near and dear to our hearts. It's a layered issue but a recent popular topic regarding addressing the issue has been proposing mixed-income housing in large cities across America. It's been met with mixed reception, so let's have a potluck, read an article from the Metro Times about the issue, and have a facilitated discussion! 
The event is free with a $5 suggested donation to cover the amenities of the wonderful event venue, Bank Suey. Coffee and tea will be provided, but also feel free to bring a dish to share! 
Here is a link to the article: https://www.metrotimes.com/detroit/community-advocates-warn-of-affordability-crisis-as-city-eyes-mixed-income-housing-ordinance/Content?oid=3784652 
If possible, please read it ahead of time (it's not too long) but we will also give people some time to read it at the beginning of the event and there will be some paper copies of the article provided.

Democracy In Development: CDBG Forum for Hamtramck/Detroit District 3

The basics on Community Development Block Grants
**Free & Open to Everyone**

We'll talk about what a "Community Development Block Grant" is, what types of projects are elligble, and how citizens can take advantage of this process to ensure grants are being used for things we want and need in our downtowns. If you are a citizen who wants to be involved in the process, and have your voice heard, this is for you! No economic development experience is necessary!
