Write A House: Detroit

Gerrit Rietveld reissued, a virtual reality gender swap, NASA in art and more in our weekly look at the web

As a ray of light in a city often focused on because of its turmoil,
Detroit’s Write A House literary campaign
hopes to draw a new generation of writers to the city with recently
renovated homes. By employing the Young Detroit Builders organization, the
program aims to teach youth the skill of carpentry while revitalizing
a rough neighborhood at the same time, with the end result being an
encouraging, self-sustaining writers’ community.
