The What’s Up Downtown Project
The project aims to remove barriers to transform Downtown Flint into an inclusive, equitable space by diversifying the types of experiences being offered. That is, to grow our strong traditions and evolve our identity from cars and running to a cultural city. The project will implement a year-round, citizen-driven collection of pop-ups to activate our beautiful, historic downtown to create a big impact. Authentic art, music, and culture that is being made right here in the neighborhoods of Flint, Michigan will be provided new platforms as we transform the parks, alleys, and other public spaces into venues for gathering.
