This map generated by Data Driven Detroit and Miller Dickinson Blais accompanied a Kresge Foundation report called “Creative Vitality in Detroit: The Detroit Cultural Mapping Project.”

What is most interesting is that the cultural spaces and industries are concentrated in areas where the cultural workforce does not live. Those who are created and maintaining Detroit’s cultural assets are unable to live near them. The creative economy is often touted as an element of Detroit’s revitalization, but this map presents a stark picture of where and who is benefiting.
