About the speaker

Brandon Christopher is a Detroit-based creator and owner of CANVASxDetroit, an arts engagement platform dedicated to arts engagement, arts exposure, & art-based solutions. A former pro-business lobbyist, Brandon hung up his wingtips and suits in exchange for paint and brushes to spread the idea that art lies within the heart of every person!

After graduating from Detroit’s BUILD Entrepreneurship Institute in 2013, Brandon launched CANVASxDetroit opening his first location on Woodward Avenue in downtown Detroit. In 2016, Brandon co-founded MASH Detroit, a mixed-use community engagement space near the Detroit/Grosse Point border and moved CANVASxDetroit to its current eastside location.

Brandon is excited to grow CANVASxDetroit by expanding their creative offerings beyond the visual arts to include entertainment, technology, and art-solutions consulting.
