This will be a daylong event meant to celebrate all that is Philadelphia at this moment in time. It is often said that we are in the midst of a great renaissance of culture, new business, population growth and the highly coveted increase in both national and international tourism. Why is this? How did this happen? What does it mean? What should be celebrated and what should be revised.
The speakers and performers for this event were all chosen because they have a very specific and unique Philadelphia story. Our goal was to present active and engaged citizens of our city that were committed to being a part of the solutions that can help this city continue to grow but flourish in a way that supports every demographic, every culture and every person. We will always be a city of us and them unless we move towards becoming a more collaborative and cooperative community. These independent and thoughtful voices will help open our minds to celebrate our futures, learn from our past and create a stronger, more unified present in an untraditional theatrical format.
