IdeaLab takes place this Friday, Dec. 6 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Ross School, 701 Tappan Street, in Ann Arbor. The event is free and open to all. For conference information and registration, click here.

Oh, and this year we're mixing it up a bit. We're asking our presenters to not just share their work, but to float one radical idea for the future of Detroit.

What will they say? Come on out to listen.

The fourth annual R&B Conference highlights growth and regrowth occurring in Detroit. The conference will explore the vision of the future city and the intersection between business, education and community investment in realizing this vision. It also aims to connect Michigan students with those creating change in Detroit.

This year's IdeaLab is presented by Urban Innovation Exchange, thanks to support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
