Little Girl Blue. Comic books. Lizzo. Giants, Wizards & Gnomes. The Children of Blood & Bone. You never know where you’ll find creative inspiration.
In partnership with Detroit Public Library HYPE Center, InsideOut Literary Arts will jumpstart the imaginations of the city’s young writers in the BrainstOrm Summer Arts Institute, a week-long dive into all the spaces that good storytelling may appear.
During BrainstOrm, youth entering grades 7-9 are invited to engage their own writing through a multi-disciplined approach to the arts, which includes improv exercises, creative writing workshops, reading and discussion groups, daily field trips to museums and more. We can’t think of a better way to start the summer—or jumpstart the next school year!
Workshops will run from Tuesday, July 9 to Friday, July 12, with a culminating event on Saturday, July 13. Advance registration required.
Summer Arts Institute is a free public program, with support from The Skillman Foundation.
