Join us in a convening of a wide range of Detroit residents including both longtimers and newcomers. The event will provide attendees with the opportunity to engage each other in healthy dialogue to address tensions between new and longtime Detroiters in a rapidly changing city. The morning program will include remarks by local and national leaders, facilitated conversations and interactive trainings, as well as invitations to participate in follow-up sessions. Participants will then be invited to break bread together over lunch.

This is the first event as part of The Better Arguments Project, a collaboration by the Aspen Institute, Facing History and Ourselves, and Allstate that was created to help bridge ideological divides – not by papering over those divides but by teaching Americans how to have better arguments.
At this morning program you will hear from local and national leaders, gain real-life skills through interactive dialogue and receive invitations to participate in follow-up sessions.

We are people who are passionate about cities. Not just the physical city—the social & civic life of a community, too. We don't believe you can talk about cities without addressing racial, class & gender equity. It's in everything we do.
By amplifying voices & ideas, and promoting a culture of learning, we create more informed & engaged communities— and a greater sense of belonging & connection, too.
We host all kinds of programs for city dwellers & travelers.
Our signature events are Parlor Talks & City Lobby—but we've also hosted dinner & dialogues, tea & wine tastings, an urbanism book club, film screenings, Jane's Walks, James Baldwin Hour, cross-city fieldtrips & exchanges, video & podcast recording sessions, focus groups & workshops, co-working hours, civic group meetings & more.
We've welcomed famous national thought leaders—and almost-famous local ones. We've popped up in storefront cafes for neighborhood conversations, and met outside in public parks. We once hosted a Connect Four tournament & turned our front porch into a music stage. We like to mix it up.
Every new location starts with three things—a home, a host & a champion:
Home: A historic space in a walkable neighborhood
Host: A local urbanist with a passion for people & ideas
Champion: A visionary leader who understands the value of talent retention & attraction, leadership development, and an empowered & engaged citizenry.
After a two-year pilot supported by Knight Foundation, we know who we are—and what we're not. We are not an exclusive private club or a startup accelerator. We are a space for intimate, inclusive & intelligent conversations about the city.
An open door matters to us a lot. Locals & travelers welcome.
“It used to be that people were born as part of a community and had to find their place as individuals. Now people are born as individuals, and have to find their community.” —Bill Bishop
We believe people who love cities is a "big tent" constituency—but too often are separated by sector, identity, or geography. From designers & developers to artists & activists, we all share a passion for place and have much to learn from one another.
Bigger picture: We've all seen the alarming research—Americans are growing more isolated & divided. Membership in civic groups is declining, while tension between city newcomers & longtimers is rising. This is dangerous for our social fabric & civic life.
People need places to come together—and to be invited, too.
“One of my favorite intellectual social spaces in Detroit.”
This is how Detroit real estate broker Tanya Stephens described the Consulate to her friends on Facebook. Thank you, Tanya.
We listen to our guests. They're smart and know best what conversations need to be had. From local speakers & topics, to out-of-town experts, to new event formats—dinner & dialogues, neighborhood pop-ups, city fieldtrips & more—our programs are shaped by the communities we serve.
Stay tuned for a new Urban Consulate series in a new Detroit location!

"The question is not 'Can you make a difference?' You already do make a difference.
It's just a matter of what kind of difference you want to make during your life on this planet."

Hill is best known for living in a 180-foot (55 m)-tall, 1,000-year-old California Redwood tree for 738 days between December 10, 1997 to December 18, 1999. Hill lived in the tree, affectionately known as "Luna," to prevent loggers of the Pacific Lumber Company from cutting it down.
