Collinwood’s Waterloo Arts and Entertainment District is a regional destination, bringing in tons of visitors to the neighborhood. The district is home to an eclectic mix of Indie music venues and art galleries, the perfect place for artists young and old to launch their career or expand their practice. All of this sits just blocks away from miles of lakefront parks and streets lined with trees and large-historic houses.

Northeast Shores is the local community development corporation that creates a better North Shore Collinwood for everyone to live, work, and visit. We are proud to serve this mixed income, mixed race neighborhood located on the shores of Lake Erie. The organization is a non-profit that increases homeownership in the neighborhood and helps entrepreneurs bring their business ideas to the market. Over the last 10 years, the organizations’ activities have resulted in over $42 million in neighborhood investment.

The Kresge Foundation is a $3 billion private, national foundation headquartered in Metropolitan Detroit, in the suburb community of Troy, that works to expand opportunities in America’s cities through grant making and investing in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services, community development and our place-based efforts in Detroit.
