Timeship #39

TIMESHIP #39 is a museum built by two time travelers back from the year 2113. They have come to America, 2018 to share environmental warnings and inspirations, and to begin reimagining how to build a better future on this toxic and troubled planet. They chose to travel to 2018 believing this is the perfect time to make changes to create an inclusive, sustainable future.

The exhibits are designed to spark ideas, conversation, & change. You're invited onboard to experience our curious collection and inspirations past, present, & future! 

"Our time-traveling school bus has been converted into an educational museum.
We travel throughout America's heartland in search of open-minded individuals who can take in our museum's warnings of environmental degradation and turn these horrors into imaginative creations and actions for a better future.
We aim to inspire grassroots movements across middle and southern America that can pave the way for a sustainable future.  Visitors to our bus are invited to make a change or initiate a project in their town and share their work using the #MissionTIMESHIP tag."

Hillbilly Highway Reading Night

Join us for a literary evening about place, home and identity that explores the common ground between Detroit and Appalachia. Besides their rich labor histories and socioeconomic realities, the two places are linked by the “Hillbilly Highway” migration of the mid-20th century. With a lineup of extraordinary writers and musicians from North and South, urban and rural, this evening will celebrate the art that grows from our common experiences.

RACIAL WEALTH DISPARITY

president lyndon johnson, during the detroit uprising of 1967, created the kerner commission to draft a report on civil disorders, so-called "race riots". the 600 plus page report released a year later said "...our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal.” while society has evolved, there is little progress; the sort of blatant racism that characterized the 60s is barely relegated to history and institutional racism remains vibrant, as evidenced by the widening racial wealth disparity-- a kerner report postscript released in february 2018 remarks on this. 
currently in detroit, and most other communities of color, there are two factions vying to create equitable communities and close the racial wealth gap. one group is focused on self determination and community agency, while others use philanthropy and a free market approach. using the problem of food access, we will discuss the way forward over delicious food & strong drink.
