Framed by WDET: Places Where We Belong is a free multimedia exhibition that celebrates the stories of communities with a rich legacy in Detroit.

From long-time residents who are preserving a southern blues music tradition to neighbors who share Middle Eastern cuisine, this exhibition explores the moments and spaces that we share with one another through the work of Detroit-based photographers and storytellers.

This collection of work features 10 communities and documents the voices of nearly 100 local residents from neighborhoods like Delray, Hamtramck, Southwest Detroit, and the broader Detroit region. This is the first time that this collective body of work is being presented in one space as an immersive experience that celebrates our global city.

Framed by WDET: Places Where We Belong is sponsored by Bedrock and made possible with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and individual donors.

Produced by WDET, Detroit’s NPR station — in collaboration with a community of local artists, collaborators, and residents.

Featuring photography by Amy Sacka, Corine Vermeulen, Cydni Elledge, Doug Coombe, Erik Paul Howard, Justin Milhouse, Kenny Karpov, Marvin Shaouni, and Sean Work. Audio stories by Conor Anderson, Courtney Hurtt, Laura Herberg, Laura Weber-Davis, Kenny Karpov, Martina Guzmán, Rob St. Mary, Shannon Cason, Shelby Jouppi, and Zak Rosen.
