Detroit Releases City of Design Action Plan to Drive Inclusive Growth through 2025
On 12 April, Detroit, Creative City of Design, led by Design Core Detroit – formerly Detroit Creative Corridor Center – has unveiled the Detroit City of Design Action Plan, which aims to drive inclusive growth through 2025. The Action Plan, which includes a vision, strategy and recommendations, is the final outcome of the organization’s year-long process to activate Detroit’s UNESCO City of Design designation.
The Detroit City of Design Action Plan outlines a plan for developing Detroit as a global leader in the practice of inclusive design, which considers the entire spectrum of cultural diversity and individual experiences to create solutions with a social impact.
“In understanding the difference design can make in Detroit—especially as we strive for inclusive growth—we recognize it is about moving toward a different way of designing. This Action Plan can serve as a resource to other cities—nationally and globally—with similar goals.” said Ellie Schneider, director of advocacy and operations at Design Core and UCCN focal point for Detroit.
