The Detroit Narrative Agency is an initiative that aims to change the stories that form the future of this city. We are a group of Detroiters who understand that the DNA of of this city is made up of many stories, and who seek to shift the stories that are currently being told in and of Detroit towards justice. Join us on Wednesday April 13th for our first public forum! We are excited to begin cultivating moving image projects (film, video installation, emerging multimedia forms, etc.) in and of Detroit. This May we will launch a grant application to provide seed grants of $5,000 - $10,000 to artists and community members who want to shift the narratives of Detroit. What stories are you sick of hearing about Detroit? What stories do you want to uplift about Detroit? At the forum we will collectively brainstorm stories we want to shift and challenge, and stories we hope to see uplifted about Detroit. Through this forum we invite you to help shape the priorities of this initiative with your ideas for film and other moving image projects. We welcome people of all disciplines and backgrounds - whether you’re an artist, community organizer, media-maker, community member, lifelong or longtime Detroiter, join us to help shape the narratives we tell about Detroit! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

On April 28th, Terrence Kellom was shot dead by police in front of his father at their home on Evergreen. At the time, children were playing outside at two daycare centers on the corner nearby. The man who pulled the trigger. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Mitchell Quinn left the Detroit police department with a checkered past. To date, there is no clear explanation of what happened or why. Stand with the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality and its coalition partners, Michigan United, the Council on American Islamic Relations, Baptist Pastors' Council, Detroit Pastoral Alliance for Change, Northern Borders Coaltion, BLMDetroit, and Mothers of Murdered Children. Show the world that we will not quietly stand by while another young, Black man is denied his human rights.
