U-M, MEDC launch crowdfunding effort to transform vacant Detroit building into community maker space

The U-M Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design and the Michigan Economic Development Corp. recently announced a transformative campaign through the Michigan-based crowdfunding platform Patronicity.

The campaign will help convert a vacant 3,200-square-foot building on the Detroit Community Schools campus into the Brightmoor Maker Space, a place for youth and adults to build their creative making skills and incubate business ideas.

“This funding will allow us to officially move forward with our plans to provide a much-needed physical space that will expand the impact of our ongoing arts programming in the Brightmoor community,” said Gunalan Nadarajan, dean of the Stamps School.
