Let’s face it – we need some sort of invigorating experiences during this time. And while we’re maintaining our social distance, we also have to keep our brains on the move and make the most of the situation that we’re in currently.
That is why we’ve pulled together a few virtual ideas to keep you alert and finding some sense of normalcy, as well as giving you ideas on how you can help those who need it.

UNITY FROM A DISTANCE II: VIRTUAL ART SHOW & FUNDRAISING EVENT
Unity From a Distance is a virtual art show and fundraising event conceived, created, and curated by Brandon F. Ottenbacher as a means to raise funding and create free promotions for independent and freelance artists who are experiencing financial setbacks due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Not only will Unity provide crucial financial assistance but it will also allow people to enjoy visual art, music, and creative networking possibilities, safely, in the comfort of their own homes.
All donations (tickets) will go towards our artist’s lost wages, creating new art projects, further development into online virtual events and collaborations, and it will also help us prepare for the unexpected.
Access will be granted with an emailed link and password for any donation of $5+.
If you donated over $10 to Unity I, you will be receiving a complimentary link and password for Unity II.
LIVE NATION’S ‘LIVE AT HOME’
Live Nation shares that “Just because we’re keeping our distance doesn’t mean the music has to stop. Join us daily for live streams from around the globe — follow artists live from their homes as they share music, stories, and more.”
You can access concerts, interviews, and more from their website at livenation.com/livefromhome.
CURBSIDE RESTAURANT WEEKS
Dine Drink Detroit and Bureau, in partnership with the City of Detroit and others in the hospitality industry, present Curbside Restaurant Weeks, a movement to support restaurants in Detroit, metro Detroit, and beyond, starting Wednesday, April 1 until restaurant dine-in service can resume. Unlike a traditional restaurant week, Curbside Restaurant Weeks will take place indefinitely until the crisis is fully behind us.
