The "Rust Belt to Artist Belt" conference will be held April 6-7 in Detroit

Creative types from across the country will convene in Detroit next month to talk about how artists can help revitalize post-industrial cities.

Matt Clayson directs the Detroit Creative Corridor Center and is one of the people behind the “Rust Belt to Artist Belt” conference.

He says the conference will focus on the creative supply chain many post-industrial cities like Detroit have to offer:

"We have an ability to transform the way we think of the role of art and design and mass production. Art and Design can really lead technological and manufacturing trends."

The conference will be held April 6-7, 2011. You can find a list of scheduled speakers here.

This is the third Rust Belt to Artist Belt conference. The first two were held in Cleveland.
