The Detroit Creativity Project (DCP) was founded in 2011 to help raise much-needed funds to provide valuable arts education.  This plan was due to the local economy challenge and the lack of funds for education that has led to many Detroit public schools being forced to cut back on arts programming.

Their founding members are a group of working actors, writers, directors and musicians whose roots are in Detroit. The roster includes artists from across the spectrum of the performing arts: a musical director for a Grammy award-winning pop artist, a rising young film director, and the creators and stars of popular television comedy shows.

In 2012, the DCP began collaborating with the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit/Y-Arts to provide a free improvisational theater program for Detroit middle and high school students. The 10-week program is offered through Y-Arts Detroit during the fall and spring school semesters. The instructors are working artists with formal training in improvisation and arts education. In addition to their professional training, DCP instructors complete an orientation program through Y-Arts prior to leading their first class. To date, the course has been offered as part of English, language arts and theater curriculums. Students represent a broad cross-section of ethnicities and incomes, and come from neighborhoods across Detroit.
