Decompress: A closing night celebration of No Safety Net

Having important, often tough, and constructive conversations is worth celebrating.

After three weeks of No Safety Net, with over 20 performances and many community dialogues and workshops, we all deserve a little self-care. Join us for a relaxed closing night celebration featuring DJs and musicians from Detroit’s Seraphine Collective, appearances by No Safety Net artists, mixing and mingling, snacks, and a cash bar.

Free entry with a No Safety Net ticket stub, or $5 cover; cash bar.
