Brainstorming at Packard

May 31, 2015

On Tuesday, Detroit Future City is hosting a session for the public to come and Think Big Thoughts on “opportunities for innovation in Detroit.”

And while we at Crain’s like to think big thoughts with the rest of them, we can’t lie that we’re most excited about the location: Packard Automotive Plant Building 22.

So it’s a legal excuse to visit the Packard Plant. Tuesday’s event will be held 6-8 p.m. A panel will discuss innovation, including Rufus Bartell, owner of Simply Casual; Lydia Guiterrez, co-founder and president of Hacienda Mexican Foods; William Jones, CEO of Focus: Hope; and Dan Kinkead, director of projects for DFC.

James Canning, spokesman, said the event seeks to engage people within their own communities and Future City’s planning framework.
