We've got less than two months to organize for the Saturday May 23, 2015 March Against Monsanto. Last year Fuzzytek tried out the Infest the Festival idea - the biggest problem was TIMING - the gates of Movement Festival don't open until noon. THEREFORE, if we move forward with that theme and holding street performance to those standing in line waiting to get in --- we'll want to start in the afternoon. That moves our event into the generally accepted time of 1pm in each locale - but that also means we'll be holding the event at the same time as Ann Arbor. Past events there have been a few people come in from AA to Detroit and got both events into one day. If you have questions call Fuzzytek at 313-757-2619. My cell phone bill is coming up though, hopefully I can put $25 together by the date of the event to keep the phone on. If you are seeking cellular service contact me. One idea to hold discussion on is film showings while we hold build nights. This could be a way to raise some cash, although the venue is going to cost a little for equipment and personnel. There are additional topics to bring into discussion such as Earth Day Detroit and how can we connect the March into those various events happening around the city. WE CAN DO IT TOGETHER. Please bring a friend when you come, or check the event timeline for those that might be seeking ride assistance.

Artists are encouraged to include musical revolution and industrial history as reference and inspiration. Art is to be displayed at a multi media event featuring live music by Tartanic, and Dixon's Violin! Tartanic took the traditional bagpipes and added tribal drums, creating a new sound!

Free to members - $5 suggested donation for non-members Not a member? Join at the door and you get in for free! Join Preservation Detroit as we welcome Marsha Music for the first in a series of lectures from long time Detroiters telling stories about the neighborhoods they came of age in. "Where We Used to Live" seeks to highlight the under-told first hand accounts of life in the city before it became the "Detroit" of today's headlines. The Detroit narrative is so often told by those from the outside through statistics and one dimensional demographic data, storytelling allows for the emersion of the human component of the narrative. Each "Where We Used to Live" lecture will highlight life in a different neighborhood as told from the perspective of a person with roots and connection to that place, someone that can draw you in and make you feel what it was like to be in a particular place at a particular point in time. About Marsha: Marsha Music grew up in Highland Park, MI, the daughter of a legendary pre-Motown record producer, Joe Von Battle. Marsha is a self-described "primordial" Detroiter, and writes about the city’s music and its past and future - with a special emphasis on Black Bottom, Hastings Street and mid-century African-American Detroit life. She is a noted presenter and has contributed to important anthologies, narratives and an HBO documentary on Detroit. She is a Kresge Literary Arts Fellow, and has received accolades for her One Woman Show, Live On Hastings Street! that debuted to a capacity crowd at MOCAD for the 2012 ArtX Detroit Festival. She has worked in the courts for 24 years and resides in Lafayette Park, where she writes a blog called Marsha Music - A Grown Woman’s Tales of Detroit (http://www.MarshaMusic.wordpress.com/). Our Third Friday Lecture Series is made possible by the generous donations of our members, to share the tales of Detroit’s historic buildings, neighborhoods, and architects and build support for historic preservation’s importance in revitalizing our neighborhoods.
