Framed by WDET is an audio-visual series produced by WDET, Detroit’s public radio station, integrating photography and storytelling to tell the story of ethnic and cultural communities throughout metro Detroit.
Between 2014 and 2018, WDET paired Detroit-based photographers and audio producers to craft authentic stories about their own communities and neighbors. Framed by WDET stories have been presented on the radio, online, and in pop-up exhibitions in more than 20 art spaces in the Detroit region and beyond.
This project is made possible with support from individual donors, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, the Kresge Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Produced in collaboration with a community of local artists, collaborators, and residents.
