The community-based Southwest Detroit youth group promotes the holistic development of young people in urban settings through relationship building, community education and passion-driven projects. It is using a two-year grant to develop an arts-infused public plaza and artists’ market that expand The Alley Project, or TAP Gallery, a multifaceted program to create new spaces where neighborhood residents can engage in arts and cultural activities.
