The Cranbrook Project is a separate 501(c)3 that was established in 2016 by Christ Church Cranbrook and funded by a grant from the Erb Family Foundation to work on closing the distance between surrounding cities and suburbs as well as the many religious, artistic, and educational communities in Metropolitan Detroit through music, arts, and education. In 2021, the Erb Family Foundation awarded the Cranbrook Project another grant of $1 million to hire a manager to enable the nonprofit to grow and continue to do its important work at an even larger scale.
In February, Kisma Jordan will start as the Cranbrook Project’s Arts & Programming Manager! Kisma is a classically-trained opera singer, composer, and educator with multiple degrees in vocal performance. During her career, she has performed on opera stages across the country and received many prestigious awards and accolades. In recent years, Kisma received a grant from the Knight Foundation for her OperaSoul project that has allowed her to pave new ways to build equity and accessibility for the opera and classical industries. Kisma looks forward to bringing her grant management & writing knowledge and expertise to the Cranbrook Project! We are excited to welcome Kisma on board and to watch the Cranbrook Project grow and flourish in its mission under her leadership!
