About this grant

This grant provides project support to Red Ink Flint. The grantee will work with the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation to convert a former Dort Motor Car Company building into Factory Two, a community accessible makerspace where creative people will gather to work on their product ideas, learn, and network together. Funding will support build out of the facility, equipment purchases, and operations costs. Red Ink Flint also operates Flint Local 432, a performance venue located in downtown Flint that provides artistic programming and community convening in the city.
