Event description
Tya Winn is the Executive Director of the Community Design Collaborative

About this event

In 2021 the Community Design Collaborative celebrates three decades of providing pro-bono design services to Philadelphia neighborhoods. New Executive Director, Tya Winn, will reflect on the projects and values that supported the completion of 1000+ design projects totaling over $13 million in value in the nonprofit’s history. As the organization reflects on the events and effects of the last year, they ponder what comes next for neighborhood design centers? What response is needed from the design community and what agency practitioners have in bringing about equitable outcomes?

Organizer Athenaeum of Philadelphia

Organizer of Leveraging Legacy: 30 Years of Community Centered Design with Tya Winn

The Athenaeum was established in 1814 as a subscription library, at a time when the free public library system did not exist and collections of books, available for reading or research, were still mostly limited to institutions, schools or colleges.

The Athenaeum of Philadelphia nurtures curiosity in members and neighbors, strengthening community through learning and discourse.

The Athenaeum of Philadelphia is one of 16 membership libraries that collaborate through the Membership Libraries Group. Some, like the Charleston (est. 1748), New York Society (est. 1754), and Newport (est. 1741) libraries, date from the 18th Century.
