Imagining Education in 2034 through Community Art

ArtWell’s community arts festival will take place May 31 at Oxford Mills.

During ArtWell’s community arts Festival on May 31, youth, neighbors, and leaders will use art, performance and dialogue to create a collective vision for what education in Philadelphia could look like in the future in Imagining Philadelphia.

Imaginings are part performance, part facilitated dialogue, part celebration, which bring together a diverse groups of artists, organizers, and community members to imagine what their neighborhoods (and the world) might look like in the year 2034, in a world where art’s transformative power has been fully integrated into all aspects of public life.

Imagining Philadelphia will be led by Cultural Agent Julia Terry of the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture and ArtWell, along with partners from Childen’s Hospital of Philadelphia, University Community Collaborative, Al Bustan Seeds of Culture, and Art Sanctuary.

Also at the ArtWell festival, students who participated in the Art of Growing Leaders, a youth leadership program, will present their arts-based social action projects. ArtWell received an Impact100 award earlier this year to pilot the program in 12 sites, serving more than 300 middle and high school youth.

In addition, there will be free art, poetry, music, performance and dance, food trucks and more at the festival, which runs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on May 31 at Oxford Mills. Imagining Philadelphia will take place at 2 p.m.
