Vision for the Future: Heidelberg 3.0
The time has come to transform the HP with a new and fresh vision called Heidelberg 3.0.
Just as the city of Detroit is changing, the narrative and landscape of the Heidelberg Project is evolving. How can the HP remain relevant in an ever changing society? How can we secure the legacy of the Heidelberg Project for future generations? These are just a few questions we are asking as we gear up for the next evolution of the Heidelberg Project. The next year will be a transitional phase for us, as our vision for Heidelberg 3.0 takes shape. During this time we will focus our work in the development of three tracks, which are outlined below:
Thirty Months of Heidelberg
Join us as we celebrate our past, present and future through Thirty Months of HP, a series of special programming in conjunction 30-year anniversary of the Heidelberg Project.
Marking one year for each month, Thirty Months of HP celebrates the 30-year journey of the HP through a series of unique experiences and events. Check out our events calendar for additional details and join us as we celebrate 30-years of art, energy and community!
Transformation of the HP site
As the evolution of the Heidelberg Project takes place, HP founder and creative director Tyree Guyton will use a minimal approach in curating the site to maximize the open, outdoor space.
In moving forward, we can expect to see changes at the Heidelberg Project installation site, as Tyree dismantles existing installations to make room for a new vision. This is an organic process that will take months, if not years for Guyton to complete.
The HP is poised to transform from an arts installation driven by one man into an arts infused community that calls for the participation of many.
As the vision for Heidelberg 3.0 evolves, we will focus on the development of new and existing alliances with residents, artists, local community groups, and government municipalities, all of whom can assist in the development of an arts district in the McDougall-Hunt neighborhood.
