Interview with Liza Bielby about the Porous Borders Festival

Interview with Liza Bielby about the Porous Borders Festival

I sat down this week to chat with my neighbor Liza Bielby about the Porous Borders Festival happening next weekend around the Detroit and Hamtramck border. Liza is part of The Hinterlands, the group responsible for organizing the festival. Read what she has to say, visit the website, and come out to the festival. [Shameless plug] I'm hosting an event called The Breakdown on Saturday May 16th at 8 pm, where anyone with a story to tell, talent to showcase, song to sing, fruit to juggle is invited to perform when the spirit moves them.

Within the first month of moving to Detroit two different friends took me to see the Heidelberg Project. For those of you unfamiliar with this incredible public art space, check out their website. Founded in 1986 by Tyree Guyton, his wife Karen, and his grandfather Sam Mackey, The Heidelberg Project has been around for nearly my entire life, and like any great work of art, it has garnered its fair share of controversy.
