Detroit urban revitalization forum kicks off Monday

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Using joy to jumpstart urban revitalization is the focus of a forum this week at Wayne State University in Detroit.

The university is hosting a series of events Monday and Tuesday dubbed "Joy: in the Midst of Transition." It includes a public lecture and panel discussion with urban planning, creative and design experts.

The lecture and discussion are scheduled for Tuesday evening at Wayne State's Community Arts Auditorium. They are free and open to the public.

The events are presented by the university's Van Dusen Urban Leadership Forum. It's named after Richard Van Dusen, the late Detroit lawyer who also served as a university board member, Republican state lawmaker and undersecretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
