About

The Trumbullplex is a housing collective and showspace in the Woodbridge neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan, USA. It was created in 1993 when members of the collective established a nonprofit corporation and purchased the property. The Trumbullplex consists of two 100+ year old historic homes, an attached art space, and various outdoor greenspaces. The two houses provide long-term low-cost living space to local artists and activists, as well as short-term lodging for traveling artists, activists and friends.

The art space showcases DIY musicians (from punk, to folk, to hip hop and beyond), theater troupes, puppet shows, poetry readings, dance parties and other community events on a donation basis. Additionally, the space provides weekly aerobics classes and houses a zine library containing thousands of zines from near and far – most of which came to them from the now defunct Idle Kids Info Shop.

The Trumbullplex aims to provide a space for artists, activists, educators, neighbors, and more to come together and share art and ideas to combat all forms of oppression.
