Blended Collective and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s NextGen Committee have partnered to host an event combining their shared values of diversity and inclusion in the context of music and design. Blended Collective is focused on authentically reaching and engaging diverse audiences through its core mission of uniting people of multicultural backgrounds to push forward cultural change and growth in the Detroit community. NextGen’s efforts directly support the DSO’s strategic pillar of diversifying audiences through community partnerships. Through their flourishing relationships with Design Core Detroit, they aim to expand this collaboration to attract a broader, more diverse Detroit community.
“Blended: Design, Diversity, and the DSO”, hosted by Blended Collective through its quarterly event series, will feature a DSO musician who will lead the audience through an exploration of diversity in design through music. This event includes a talk and musical performance followed by a Q&A.
