Philly Block Project

Date & Time:
March 18, 2016 | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The Philly Block Project, launched by the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center in October 2015, is an 18 month-long, socially-engaged collaboration that provides a visual narrative of the South Kensington neighborhood’s past and present through photographs. It simultaneously creates shared spaces for fostering interconnectivity, celebrating the history, and preserving the heritage of the community. 

Lori Waselchuk, the Project Coordinator, will discuss the Philly Block Project, now at its mid-way point. According to Waselchuk, “because so much depends on community participation, the project evolves with every step.” Waselchuk’s talk will present the project’s inception, its goals, outcomes, challenges and successes.
