As part of its multi-part project Philadelphia Assembled, the Philadelphia Museum of Art presents a film screening of Zein Nakhoda’s Grounded While Walls Fall. The film profiles practices of resilience and spiritual grounding among organizers, cultural workers, and movement builders in Greater Philadelphia. A discussion will be held following the screening, moderated by sound healer and performer Rhetta Morgan, who is prominently featured in the film.

Free tickets are required for this event.

Philadelphia Assembled is an expansive, citywide project initiated by Dutch visual artist Jeanne van Heeswijk that invites change agents throughout the city to collectively imagine a present and future Philadelphia. The multi-part project is organized around five themes, or what van Heeswijk calls “atmospheres”—Reconstructions, Sovereignty, Futures, Sanctuary, and Movement—each derived from preliminary conversations about the city’s changing landscape.
