CULTURE LAB DETROIT is a non-profit organization that engages world-class artists, designers, and architects in thoughtful discussions and innovative projects. Founded in 2012 by President and Creative Director Jane Schulak, Culture Lab Detroit stimulates new relationships, artistic opportunities and deeper connections between local and international communities. Curated dialogues evolve into permanent and transformative projects of design, art, architecture, and installation, contributing to Detroit's cultural landscape.

Now in its fifth year, Culture Lab Detroit’s 2017 panel discussion series returns to engage internationally reputed artists, architects, and theorists on the theme of Post-Truth -- exploring how art can help us navigate a world of contested reality.

All programs are free and open to the public!

We want to hear from you!
