Co.act Detroit is more than just another space. It’s an integral part of a neighborhood with a storied past and an emerging future.
Co.act is located at the site of the former Sanders Pavilion of Sweets shop on Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Sanders was once a household name in Southeast Michigan, whose famous fudge, candy and Bumpy Cake brought families, friends and neighbors together in conversation. Fred Sanders himself was an innovator, known for piloting ideas that soon became the norm at soda fountains across the country.
Our space continues the legacy of bringing people together to build community, inspire conversation and facilitate idea generation that makes communities, neighborhoods and missions flourish.
