Support the Detroit Atlas Collaboration by donating to or sharing our crowdfunding campaign on Patronicity! Every share and contribution gets us closer to matching the $10,000 Knight Arts Challenge Grant!

At each workshop and event, participants have the option to keep their print or drawing, or leave it with the facilitator of the workshop to be added to the final collection of prints to be bound into Atlases of Detroit. These photos are largely of the prints that have been collected, action shots from events, and photos of prints and drawings that were taken home by the participants who created them. We’re working on putting together a list of the prompts and lessons used to run these workshops, so stay tuned for more information!
