Engaging leaders in solutions to economic recovery
As Detroit houses are demolished by the thousands, automobile-company wages plummet, institutions crumble, and tourists gawk at the “charming decay,” Detropia’s vibrant characters strive to make ends meet and make sense of it all, refusing to abandon hope or resistance. More than just a poignant reflection of a city teetering on the brink of dissolution, Detropia points to a bigger issue of a nation struggling to keep up with global economic shifts. As the Ford Foundation considered how this cautionary tale could help Detroit and other cities facing similar challenges, Active Voice worked with national and local leaders to use the film as a springboard for dialogue around the need for new approaches to community development.
