Sincerely Philadelphia: A Letter to Our New President

  • Christ Church Neighborhood House 20 North American Street Philadelphia, PA, 19106 United States (map)

Part of the First Person Arts and WHYY Common Space Project. 
An original Philly reACTS production. 
Part of the Encore! Series Presented by PECO.

In this open-letter style performance addressed to our new commander in chief, Philadelphians come together through storytelling to discover the common ground we'll need to move forward under new leadership.

Join us as artists share personal accounts in response to some of the biggest issues of the past four years such as #BlackLivesMatter, the European refugee crisis, Pope Francis' visit, the state of our schools, and more.

Voice how current events have impacted your life, and share your dreams for the future at onsite recording stations. Because whether you vote red or blue, we're all part of the red, white, and blue. Featuring Philadelphia Poet Laureate Yolanda Wisher and poet Denice Frohman.
