Join artist-in-residence, Dana El Masri and get to know Dearborn through your nose! A fun smell walk that will different parts of Dearborn, through its food, people and spaces. Participants will collect data, based on the “Three categories of smells” in the public smell intro kit, originally created by Kate McLean. The findings of the smell walk will be sent for her Sensory Maps project, adding to a global city database.

This is a chance to discover a city through a totally different medium, staying mindful and paying attention to your sense of smell.

Tickets must be purchased online in advance. Limit 10 individuals per program.
