In working on my book in progress “Shaping Lives, Transforming Communities: Creative Expression in the Dance of Life,” I am collecting stories about how communities transform themselves after traumatic events. Detroit is one of the those communities.

It is the stories of individuals renewing the city and creating new ways of finding hope that make the difference. There are many in Detroit. This most recent one fires the imagination and offers insight into how a community is shaped by the creative expression of the individuals and groups within it. How many of us would have thought of making derelict homes places where flowers bring hope for the future through the installations now there and planned for the fall.

Enjoy this story and admire the sheer beauty and it brings in the midst of rebuilding.

READ…REFLECT…SHARE…BRING HOPE THROUGH CREATIVE EXPRESSION IN YOUR COMMUNITY.

The arts have very powerful roles to play in the development and renaissance of our communities. Detroit is an example of a community that is struggling to renew itself after it has suffered one economic blow after another over the years.

This is just one example of how the arts, in the hands of creative and ambitious young people, is helping one section of Detroit to become a vibrant and active area to live and grow businesses. Its focus on the multicultural foundations of the community show the strengths that come from diversity and the creative imagination.
