Working out the idea of a maker innovation center focused on reusing materials in our Detroit bioregion to create and meet the needs of the people who live and work there. It does this through the development of ideas and skills required to transform the materials into a new use. It honors and retells the history of the materials, people and place. And along the way it builds confidence and trust that together ... anything is possible.
