We know this to be true: Remarkable is a team sport. It takes a collection of passionate, talented people to all come together to bring it into the world. And we also know we are drawn to those who can achieve that amazing feat. We love to hear about everything that went into their highly crafted creations, so we can be inspired to unite a team and work to pull off our own.
That’s the mission behind this year’s Day Show TuesDAY Talk Series. Because while we can’t all get together in person for one inspiring Day Show afternoon, we can still bring Detroit a unique collection of speakers and guests — each and every Tuesday in June — who want to talk to us about why they believe awe-inspiring craft is a catalyst for meaningful connections — and vice-versa.
