NEW: Mural Dedication: Fables of Fortune

Join us to dedicate the newest mural in Southeast Philadelphia by artist Eric Okdeh.

Fables of Fortune sheds light on problem gambling, particularly within Asian immigrant communities and their families. The design is driven by personal narratives illustrating the cultural relevance of luck and gaming within those communities, the challenges problem gamblers face concerning effective linguistically and culturally appropriate services, and the emergence of predatory and convenient gambling practices as demonstrated by the development of local casinos within the past decade. The mural depicts a path of recognition, resolve, and resiliency while overcoming problem gambling, and the possibility for hope, recovery, and restored relationships.

The Porch Light Program has partnered with the Office of Addiction Services, and Southeast Asian Mutual Assistance Association Coalition (SEAMAAC) and its student initiative the Student Immigrant Leadership Council (SILC) to make this mural possible.

Fables of Fortune was sponsored by the Office of Addiction Services, The Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services, and the Patricia Kind Foundation
