WHYY and First Person Arts present a spoken word event in conjunction with the ongoing Center-funded project Commonspace. “Love Activism” invites Philadelphians to share stories about how their actions are changing lives and making a positive impact on the community.

For Commonspace, WHYY and First Person Arts are creating a series of public radio broadcasts, live arts experiences, and community events that contextualize and connect current events to daily life. This content forms the basis for a 24-month broadcast program, including a weekly podcast, a bi-monthly 30-minute radio segment, and a series of 40 short radio segments, to air weekly on WHYY-FM.
