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 Winter/Spring 2018 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 continuing our series of public dialogues and strengthening relationships throughout the city. Join us for our next two official ‘Riverwise Community Conversation‘, January 11, 2018 from 5:00-7pm at the Sweet Kingdom Baptist Church, 4150 Chene, Detroit, MI. just north of Mack Avenue. Please join Riverwise staff as they support the community-building already begun in this near-east side neighborhood by Pastor Robert Jones, Kevin “Coach Kellogg” Jones and many others. For more information call 313-921-7582
We’ll be immediately following that event up with a second ‘Riverwise Community Conversation‘ on January 13, 2018 at the KAN (Know Alleigiance Nation) Co-op Bookstore at 9405 John R. Avenue. Spoken word artist Tawana “Honeycomb” Petty and Jamii Tata will engage North End activists in a dialogue mediated by Riverwise managing editor, Eric Thomas Campbell. For more information call 313-473-7082.
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 the recent Riverwise Fall/Winter 2017 issue as a backdrop, we’ll be talking about these issues and more. We urge you to join us.
For more general information on how to schedule a Riverwise Community conversations, call 313-247-4771.
peace and unity, the Riverwise Collective
