Maggie Allesee has partnered with marketing expert Joan Abraham and R. Drew Fezzey, the chief creative officer of Orchard Lake’s Greybear Music and Film, to launch Detroit Pockets of Cool. The purpose of Pockets of Cool is “to draw young people to Detroit,” Abraham said. The website has partnered with institutions such as Wayne State University and the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy, which distribute the videos on their websites and social media streams.
