Philadelphia Assembled is an expansive project that tells a story of radical community building and active resistance through the personal and collective narratives that make up Philadelphia’s changing urban fabric. These narratives will be explored through a collaborative effort between the Philadelphia Museum of Art and a team of individuals, collectives, and organizations as they experiment with multiple methodologies for amplifying and connecting relationships in Philadelphia’s transforming landscape. Challenging, inspiring, and as big as the city, Philadelphia Assembled asks: how can we collectively shape our futures?
Project Coordinator & Collaborator
Photographic Collage of Philadelphia Assembled Map. The map was developed during formative stages of Philadelphia Assembled, by myself alongside Jeanne van Heeswijk and informed by our collaborators. Philadelphia, 2015-2016.
Blueprint for a Just Neighborhood Publication, Philadelphia Assembled Public Phase. This public site, entitled "Blueprint for a Just Neighborhood," was created in collaboration with affordable housing advocates, Women’s Community Revitalization Project, Philadelphia Coalition for Affordable Communities, Healthy Rowhouse Project, and a number of individuals. At this location, Philadelphia Assembled built a dynamic presentation space, constructed to resemble the first floor of an affordable house. This space presented personal housing narratives shared through performances, events, and workshops held within the structure. Philadelphia, 2017.
