GRiZ is back in Detroit to help develop a support network for creative kids in a city ripe for artistic renaissance. 100% of the proceeds from every charitable GRiZMAS event go toward increasing access to music education in Detroit by partnering with Seven Mile, an organization that provides after school programs and summer camps to teach children music, arts, and coding for free.
