Our vision, as stated on the home page, is to use "art to pursue urban development and the improvement of public life in the Detroit area."
To achieve this vision we need three things:
1. A dedicated group of artists and art lovers who support the goal (that's you, and hopefully many more people as we build this thing out)
2. A core group of activists who are willing to work hard to make the City government create a dialog between public artists and the city
3. A core group of artists who are passionate about doing art for the sake of improving the landscape and, by extension, the lives of the people who live in Detroit--and I'll be honest, it is unlikely that APLAUDD is ever going to be able to pay the artists for this.
