Toward a creative city

Model D has a wrap-up of the best ideas from last week's Creative Cities conference. One of those is fostering the arts, and the Kresge Foundation is doing just that through its $8.8 million program that will provide fellowships to artists and operating support to arts organizations.

Also, this is fascinating (and kind of bizarre). Neil Greenberg has mapped out an entire ideal city, a doppelganger of sorts to Detroit, and he brings it to life with the help of a few other Detroit visionaries, including activist Grace Lee Boggs. I've met Neil, and he really does have a brilliant vision for transit in Metro Detroit.
