Message from the CAID - about Tonight (6/6)

Free 24/7 event at CAID - free and open to public - pass it on

Friday at midnight CAID will open its doors to the public beginning with a special DJ event (Jay from Art Fag, Inc., Baby Joseph from Disco Night and Platinum Detroit) and a viewing of the Eco Village exhibition (sponsored by the City of Detroit) and remain open until Saturday, June 14 at midnight. This special event will feature various programs including lectures, drawing classes, concerts, camping and more. The 8 day 24 hour always open event will be free and open to the public with the exception of the last few hours for the Rock City Festival on Saturday, June 14.This is a free event but donations will be accepted to help victims of the CAID Raid to cover impound fees and any other costs associated with the May 31st police shake down.

All funds raised from this "always open" event will go directly to assist our members who received tickets on May 31st and experienced serious civil rights violations. All of the staff, DJs, artists, musicians, lecturers and art instructors will be volunteering their time and talents to help make this event a meaningful one for everyone. If you would like to volunteer please contact us at 313.899.2243 ext 151 or info@thecaid.orgWe plan to serve as a beacon for the next 8 days for anyone who wants to celebrate life and the power of the human spirit in all of its creative and curious wonder.
