Help Us Build An Outdoor Classroom!

You can make a difference by donating today to Live Coal. Live Coal transforms lives and neighborhoods through art, community development, and education.

We recently received a Knight Arts Challenge Matching Grant for our project called Detroit rePatched. Detroit rePatched is an arts-infused green space and art hub in Detroit's Brightmoor neighborhood. One of our goals is to build an outdoor classroom in partnership with Brightmoor Maker Space, a local non-profit that teaches youth carpentry skills.

While we have been doing art classes throughout the city in various contexts, we want a permanent outdoor classroom at Detroit rePatched. Our outdoor classroom will be used for educational purposes such as art classes, live demonstrations, and theatrical performances. Your support will help us build this classroom through Knight's matching grant! If we raise $5,000, the Knight Foundation will match it with another $5,000! If we raise above the $5,000, they will also match that. Any additional funds raised will go towards Detroit rePatched. You can visit to learn more about this work.

Thank you for your generous support!
