The Collab hosted a charity-networking event in December of 2015 to raise money for local Detroit charities during the holiday season. This time around, the group of Detroit entrepreneurs want to shine light on the many talented artists in the city of Detroit. Poets, rappers, and singers will take the stage to perform original content throughout the night. Photographers, painters, and other visual artists will decorate the venue with their original pieces while some artists will create new artwork during the event.
