Funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Re-Place-ing Philadelphia is built on a foundation of public dialogue and interaction, using art as a lens for viewing Philadelphia's history and re-envisioning its future. The 20-month project is designed to be open-ended, flexible, and permeable, generating a stream of performances, artworks, lectures, readings, and conversations that respond to the city and create forums for new ideas.
