Annual Membership Meeting – Beyond Pretty Pictures: Can Art Play a Role in Advancing Equitable Development?

Equitable Development is everyone’s responsibility. We need all hands on deck to ensure that every one of Philadelphia’s neighborhoods can benefit from the rising economic tide of our city and region. But to do that effectively, the community development sector must work collectively and collaboratively with a range of both usual and unusual partners.

We will visit the Philadelphia Assembled exhibition and discuss the promising opportunities and hard edged challenges of advancing equity in collaboration with artists and arts organizations–locally and nationally.

When: Wednesday, November 29th from 4:00-6:30 pm
Where: Perelman Building, the Philadelphia Museum of Art
2525 Pennsylvania Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19130
Cost: $25 PACDC Members; $50 Non-Members

The registration fee includes a ticket to the exhibit (normally $20), food and beer/wine plus a discussion led by our panelists:

  • Jeremy Liu, Senior Fellow for Arts, Culture and Equitable Development, PolicyLink
  • Jeanne van Heeswijk, social practice artist and curator, Philadelphia Assembled lead artist
  • James Dupree, visual artist, educator and activist, Dupree Studios Inc.
  • Nora Lichtash, Executive Director, Women’s Community Revitalization Project

Join us immediately following for a reception featuring menu offerings from PHLA Kitchen, as well as local beer, and wine from Moore Brothers.
