This multi-city event with arts organizers from Philadelphia, Baltimore, and New York City. They will reflect on their work, group organizational structures and strategies, what they’ve learned in the last 2 years and aspirations for organizing moving forward. This event should be of interest to students and practitioners interested in the role of art in public space making, community organizing and supporting community thriving. Convened on the occasion of Southeast by Southeast’s 10th anniversary, this program will put that work in Southeast Philadelphia in dialogue with other inspiring practices.
Join us for presentations by Shira Walinsky about Southeast by Southeast a community space through Mural Arts (Philadelphia); Laila Islam and Isa Matisse about the Future Is Us Collective (Philadelphia); Rheagen King and Joseph Orzal about Nomunomu (Baltimore); and Diane Wong about Chinatown Art Brigade (New York City).
