About the Event Series

This screening is part of #QuestHacks: Community Digital Solutions Day.

The documentary QUEST follows Christopher “Quest” Rainey and his wife Christine’a “Ma Quest” as they raise a family in North Philadelphia while nurturing a community of hip hop artists in their home music studio. In the spirit of creating an artistic sanctuary, the Raineys offered their home to the local community. Over the years, the space had a major impact on many people in their neighborhood.

In that same spirit, the QUEST Community Engagement Project, in collaboration with Code for Philly and Resolve Philadelphia, are bringing together technologists, journalists, and neighbors in North Philly for a series of events focused on creating solutions to community-based problems with the help of data, design, and technology.

About the Code for Philly Screening

Meet other members of Code for Philly, socialize with other interested volunteers, get to know our current active projects, and join us for a special screening of QUEST: An American Family. A discussion will follow the screening and both will help volunteers get ready, and get excited, to collaborate with the North Philly community.

Since we’ll be serving beer, this event is for our 21+ volunteers only.

We strongly recommend Code for Philly volunteers see the film before participating in #QUESTHacks.

The community problems that you will be creating digital solutions for are very much inspired by the film. You’ll be in a better position to contribute to the projects if you’re well-informed by having seen the film. If you can’t for any reason attend the screening speak to a Code for Philly organizer and they can provide you with a link to the film. It's also available on iTunes.

Event Schedule:

  • 6:00pm: Doors Open
  • 6:00pm - 6:30pm: Networking Time (we're providing the beer, soda, and food)
  • 6:30pm - 8:00pm: QUEST Screening (runtime is 90 minutes)
  • 8:00pm - 9:00pm: Discussion of the film, its prevalent themes, how the film informs the work that will be done during that the Kick Off and Project Day to follow on Friday and Saturday. If our discussion ends early, there will be more time to mingle.
