Points of View Speaker Series | Toward a More Global Philadelphia
Saturday, November 17, 2:00pm
Historic Landmark Building

The narratives created by artists, historians, journalists, and tourism bureaus have a direct effect on the communities they speak about, influencing economics, job markets, educational systems, and a sense of camaraderie a city's residents feel for each other. A panel of dreamers, including professionals working at the intersections of all these fields, comes together to share their expertise, their tips, and their aspirations for Philadelphia's importance in global conversations. This program is in partnership with the Global Philadelphia Assocation.
