With the release of our first issue on February 7, 2017, Riverwise Magazine is officially part of the local media landscape. Part of our stated mission is to be inclusive in ways not normally associated with print media.
We have begun accepting submissions for the Riverwise Spring issue, but we’re exploring other ways to engage and broaden the network of movement activity for the benefit of Detroit’s traditionally underserved population.
In keeping with that spirit, we are starting a series of public dialogues. Join us for our next official ‘community conversation’ June 24 at the Feedom Freedom community garden from 1-3pm to share stories of public displays of activism in your neighborhood.
Who is organizing who, to solve what prevailing issues? What existing community spaces serve as liberation zones or places to create and implement new visions? And how we can better cover these stories?
With our second issue as a backdrop, we’ll be talking about these issues and more throughout 2017 and beyond. We urge you to join us. The Feedom Freedom community garden is located at 866 Manistique, Detroit, Michigan, 48215 . For more information, call 313-247-4771.
