The American Riad

North End Woodward Community Organization
Detroit, Michigan

North End Woodward Community Organization is re-building a corner through art & culture, in a multi-year project of skillshares and public art, to create a Moroccan-style Riad (a central, shared courtyard, filled with art and gardens). So far, in addition to Detroit, this has involved related activities in New York, Texas, Massachusetts, Marrakesh (Morocco), and Yogyakarta (Indonesia).  More about this project >
