CultureTalk at the Community House

The Community House Presents CultureTalks Lecture Series

The Community House is proud to announce CultureTalks, an intimate lecture series featuring cultural mavericks from Southeast Michigan. Speakers will discuss their role and connection to our community.  Be it the region’s thriving classical music scene, the history of the 1967 Detroit riots, or the prominence of the Detroit Institute of Arts, CultureTalks showcases those who are shaping arts and culture in our region.


“The series is a culmination of the outstanding arts and cultural institutions surrounding us here at The Community House,” said Danny DeRose, Director of Programs and Enrichment. “We are thrilled to welcome these leaders and performers and look forward to cultivating a strong relationship with each of them.”
