New Voices: Detroit 2022 was a success!
For many weeks, the young artists devoted their talents and time to create a memorable show, and we are so proud of what they’ve accomplished.
We’d like to extend a few special shout-outs to the DIA, the Knight Foundation, the Ford Fund, the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, DTE, and Pitney Bowes. This show would not have been possible without your remarkable contributions, and we are endlessly grateful for you.
About New Voices: Detroit
Creating pathways for the next generation of prolific storytellers, Mosaic’s New Voices: Detroit empowers Detroit-area youth to be the authors of new narratives.
