Event description
Join Philadelphia poets and artists working across mediums to create an experimental public program.

About this Event

Organized in collaboration with FWM, the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, and Public Space One on the occasion of the FWM exhibition, Jacolby Satterwhite: Room for Living, Philadelphia poets and artists will work together to produce this experimental public program led by An Duplan. Working across mediums, the artists will generate strategies for catalyzing immediate and radical futures of marginalized peoples in the current pressurized climate of the United States. How can artists of color ensure their own 'room for living'? Artists will meet during two planning sessions, sited at local partner organizations, in September and November 2019. The culminating program will occur in January 2020.
