muraLAB: Arts, Infrastructure, and Equity

Philadelphia’s investment in new public spaces and facilities promises to transform community life—projects along the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers, the new Rail Park, and the Rebuild Philadelphia process will redefine how people use public space in the city.

These transformations raise three related questions: how can these investments ensure that these public spaces are open and accessible to all? And what role can artists play, along with arts and culture organizations, in the transformation of these places? What obligation do public, non-profit, and private institutions have in advancing equity in the surrounding community when big investments are made in public spaces?

Join the conversation at our July muraLAB, where innovators from around the country will explore these questions, moderated by Pamela Bridgeforth of PACDC.
