Open City Dearborn: microDistricts in Downtown

Build Institute, in partnership with Metromode, presents Dearborn Open City: microDistricts in Downtown Dearborn.


Join us on Thursday, June 20, from 6-8pm, at Fishnet Artist Studios, to connect and network with Dearborn creatives; followed by a lively, outdoor panel discussion, with a beautiful backdrop (behind the studio, by the colorful mural).


Featured speakers include: local artist Sunshine Durant, Fishnet Artist Studios owner Howard Pankerten; Mike Kirk, AIA, LEED APPrincipal Neumann/Smith Architecture, and, Lynette and Daniel Downey, owners of Downey Brewing Company.


The topic? How property owners can rehabilitate their buildings; and, how easing the burden of a full-renovation project can be useful to creatives (with a focus on East/West Dearborn).

Light fare and libations will be provided. Space is limited. RSVP:
