Model D special event: The Next Big Thing

Over six years and 300 issues (and counting), Model D has documented what's next for Detroit, from big development and investment, to small ideas and quirky innovation. Add up the thousands of stories told every Tuesday in vivid words and images, and it becomes very clear: the next big thing is not any one thing. It's a multitude of people and projects transforming our city -- one lot, one block, one neighborhood, one story at a time.

To celebrate the big power of small ideas, Model D proudly presents a first-ever showcase of what's next for Detroit. This Friday, Oct. 21 at the vintage 1914 David Whitney building in downtown Detroit, Model D will bring together the very best of local art, music, food, culture and entrepreneurship for a tribute to the creative spirit alive and well (nay, bursting at the seams) in our city.

We've added special musical guests to the program, the DJ crews from Future Jazz Kartel (David Armin-Parcells and Mark Szymanski) and Happy Endings, featuring Mike Trombley of Macho City.
