The Healing Memorial Making Station Pop Up

Saturday, September 18 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm


During the last year our community has faced immense trauma, from the physical loss of life, to loss of employment, loss of home and continued uncertainty. Through this pandemic, the City and the region have come together to support our residents by understanding that not only do they need economic or health support but emotional support as well. Our collective grief is something that must be recognized.

This led the City of Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship, the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy and the Cranbrook Art Museum to create a permanent, living memorial to this time to promote healing and show support for our community.

For this project, residents will be encouraged to create small memorial pouches (fits in the palm of the hand) using fabric from their loved ones or donated material. These fabric pouches will be gathered by the thousands to create a tapestry of memories to be displayed at Detroit’s TCF Center downtown.  You can visit one of the pop up memorial stations to make your own!  No registration necessary.
