Co.act Detroit’s Convening Spaces

Co.act Detroit is committed to collaborative action, and we have a multi-dimensional convening facility that supports it! Our space is designed to bring people together in a comfortable, flexible setting that inspires people to interact, build community, and move missions forward.

Co.act is located at 6568 Woodward, near the corner of E. Grand Blvd. Housed in a street-level storefront retail space, Co.act is approachable and accessible from Detroit’s main street. The neighborhood is home to a growing collection of independent restaurants, shops, and entrepreneurial businesses – many of which are run by owners of color. This dynamic intersection of the Midtown, New Center, and North End neighborhoods has emerged as a local destination and gathering place.

Co.act’s hybrid capabilities also enable collaborative user-groups to engage with remote participants.
