Mission

Creative Rights is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that enables and promotes social imagination through projects and programs that directly impact Detroit. By providing development, consultation, legal, and implementation services, Creative Rights actively engages artists, architects, entrepreneurs, universities, city governments, and community members to facilitate projects that present transformative solutions to community-based issues.

In the past three years, Creative Rights has provided over 5,500 hours of legal, business, and artistic development and consultation services to the communities of Detroit and Ann Arbor with a value of more than $1.8 million. Among a range of ongoing projects, Creative Rights is currently working with a number of departments across the University of Michigan on a platform to develop, distribute, and promote all of the University’s creative works. Creative Rights is also serving as project manager on a number of public art lighting projects involving partners such as Detroit Future City, the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation, and the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York.
