Discover Detroit Your Way, with Field Trip

Michigan Corps partners with Niantic Labs at Google and D:hive to bring local Detroit stories to your mobile device through Field Trip.
The world’s got its eye on Detroit. And it should. There are stories of transformation, creativity and collaboration surfacing everywhere. Not to mention that Detroit is, simply put, an amazing city. Its architecture, culture, entrepreneurism, sports and resident pride make it a spot well worth exploring and experiencing.

That’s why Michigan Corps has partnered with Field Trip from Niantic Labs at Google to invite you - our Corps Members – to experience Detroit through Field Trip. Field Trip from Niantic Labs is a publishing platform that surfaces stories from hyperlocal partners. We’re kicking off in Detroit with stories from partners like Detroit Moxie, Curbed Detroit, and Historic Detroit, with more to come.

The spirit of Field Trip – to invite people to discover and experience Detroit’s stories – is an important piece of Michigan Corps’ mission to give Detroiters and Michiganders everywhere easy opportunities to make a difference in our home state. Through Field Trip, Corps Members and the broader community can engage with informative, inspiring, and often hidden stories about places and people in Detroit. With those stories in hand, we believe amazing connections and creative ideas will come about!

Whether you live in the city, are planning a visit, or would like to expose friends and family to Detroit’s hidden stories, download and begin exploring with Field Trip!
