Streets Dept and Mural Arts Present: Making Art Political – A Panel Discussion on Street Art and Advocacy
WELL, this could not be needed more right now…
Making Art Political: A Panel Discussion on Street Art and Advocacy
WHEN: Tuesday, November 15th (5:30-7:30pm)
WHERE: Painted Bride Art Center, Old City
TICKETS: $5, get them HERE! (Just literally to help us pay to rent the space.)
Over the last couple of months I’ve been planning a panel discussion with Mural Arts Philadelphia and three INCREDIBLE local artists who create art for the public space which encourages political discourse.
The panel is apart of the State of Young Philly 2016. State of Young Philly is an annual event series held in the fall that brings together over 50 organizations and 1,000 young professionals, elected officials, and organizational leaders to examine the current state of young Philadelphia and to ask what we can all do to improve our beloved city.
Suffice it to say that none of us who’ve been working on planning or participating in this event hoped or expected this to be the atmosphere of our country right now, but I suppose it means this talk is even more needed now.
