EVERYONE HAS A STORY TO TELL!
Let your voice be heard! Join Matrix Sounds & Sessions. Whether you live here, work here, or play here, we want to know what southwest means to you! Share your stories and help us to celebrate the rich history, culture, and spirit that defines this area as one of the most vibrant and diverse in the entire City of Detroit.
Look for our Sounds & Sessions sign at special events and gathering spots throughout southwest Detroit and let us record your story about this great community. Join any of our Sessions workshops to learn from experts who will coach you on how to organize and develop engaging stories and present them with confidence and impact. Attend a Listening Party to hear what people have to say. You might even learn something new about the neighborhood!
