Over the last 5 years, local community anchor Garage Cultural has developed arts and culture programs in the largely Mexican-American neighborhood of Southwest Detroit. Recognizing the lack of community gathering space in the neighborhood, they will lead a community process to imagine, plan, and design a new use for a warehouse as a vital community hub that will uplift the community’s Latin-American art, culture, and food in Southwest Detroit, MI.

One of the co-founders of Garage Cultural and owner of the warehouse space, Lydia Gutierrez, is also the founder of the successful tortilla chip manufacturing company, Hacienda Mexican.
