The definition of culture is very expansive and when looking at the prompt I realized that I don’t often reflect on cultures other than my own or how culture permeates many environments like a workplace for example. I’m interested in exploring different cultures and not from an intrusive perspective, but from a place of respect and genuine interest. I think that culture can be connective and allow people to interact in ways that are beyond the superficial. When we view culture as something that is unifying rather than a part of our lives that separates us, it brings us together. Participating in the program and hearing from the guest speakers, fellows, and Ray, I’ve learned a lot about culture in Detroit that I hadn’t been informed about before. I’m looking forward to learning more about and appreciating different cultures/cultural experiences in Detroit especially.
