Thank You! Arts, Business and Corktown communities for an amazing inaugural year.

In 2016, STRUT created over 50 Detroit artist opportunities and paid out over 21k in artist fees. We created over 100k in economic development, with local music venues seeing on average 46% more in sales then they would have compared to past 4th of July weekends. And lastly, STRUT engaged with 48 businesses and organizations to make STRUT happen, almost all Detroit based.
