Philly Works aims to empower creative individuals and industries in Philadelphia. We do this through collaboration, creative partnerships, and fostering public dialogue. Philly Works began as a series of exhibitions that explored design, craft, fabrication, and manufacturing being done in Philadelphia and the region in 2009 and 2010. We have since grown into a group of people willing to share skills and resources to produce new work. This year we are focusing on “Qualities of Life in Philadelphia” and conducting a series of lectures, workshops and exhibits to explore this theme. We are also working to create a public rolodex of designer/ makers that will become a tool for communication and streamlined collaboration within the local community.
Philly Works is coordinated by Alexandra Schmidt-Ullrich and Will McHale. You can download Philly Works Press Packet below+
