Painted Bride Art Center presents a conversation with performance artist and theater director Marty Pottenger, and Leeway Foundation Executive Director Denise Brown, as part of Re-Place-ing Philadelphia. Funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Re-Place-ing Philadelphia is a 20-month-long project built on a foundation of public dialogue and interaction, using art as a lens for viewing the city and its history.

Marty Pottenger is a writer, performer, director, and activist whose background in union activism informs her inclusive practice. Creating performances, plays, arts-based dialogues, and community arts projects for nearly 40 years, her practice finds community in the art and civic dialogue movement. She seeks to establish spaces that bring disparate voices together to solve non-art problems.
