Our Artist in Residence, saylem m. celeste, has been working on a very special project titled, "Handle With Care." This event series is the fruit of a long year of research through saylem's artist residency at the Detroit Justice Center and the pilot project of the resulting Transformative Justice/Black Feminist group, Midnight Care Collective.
Handle With Care is a three-part experimental series of community activations centered around the intuitive resilience of Detroiters and the role communal care plays in our collective resistance. Through the lenses of Abolition, Transformative Justice, and Community Care, the series provides an accessible platform for participants to delve into fundamental human needs that shape our survival and the collective practices we hold to persist in our freedom struggles.
