After a great deal of planning, DESIGNCONNECT held its inaugural FUN& FUND Raiser on April 25, 2019 at the N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art. With the goal of supporting visual arts students at Detroit School of Arts (DSA) in mind, advocates came out to enjoy a night of fun which included a silent auction, dedicated giving, as well as the premier of a short film by Julian Carmona about the state of arts program at DSA, and the support DESIGNCONNECT will provide to the visual arts students at DSA.
