The 29th Annual Concert of Colors Forum

Metro Detroit’s free annual diversity-themed music festival returns for its 29th year with broadcasts across four consecutive nights. Every evening from August 5-8. Prior to the festival, Detroit Public TV, in partnership with Arab American National Museum, will present a livestream of the Concert of Colors Forum on Community, Culture & Race. The virtual discussion will gather artists, activists and advocates who use art and dialogue as a tool for advocacy and community building. The Forum’s theme this year, “What is Democracy? The Artists Respond,” speaks directly to this year’s theme of the festival, Art & Democracy.
