Emerging Arts Leaders: Philadelphia is pleased to announce Creative Conversation 2016, a one-day symposium gathering arts leaders from the Greater Philadelphia region. The event, featuring a keynote speech from PECO’s Tiffany Tavarez, will take place on Saturday, October 1, 10 am, at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (100 N. 20th St., fifth floor).

This year’s Creative Conversation follows last year’s successful “What’s Next?” event by breaking open the traditional conference format to engage participants in a daylong dialogue about the myriad ways that the arts shape our region, and how we as arts leaders can promote and support the arts in and around Philadelphia. After a morning keynote speech from Tiffany Tavarez, corporate contributions manager at PECO, attendees will divide into fast-paced facilitated discussions with local arts leaders on the ways that the arts intersect with fields and topics ranging from government, policy and community to education, entrepreneurship and social justice.

June 28: APAPASE/Young Professionals in Transportation Scavenger Hunt

Untitled-1
Saturday, June 28, 2014 (Rain Date: Sunday, June 29, 2014)
Hunt from 1 PM – 4 PM; Scoring and Post-Hunt Happy Hour from 4 – 6 pm
$7 for members of APAPA or YPT; $10 for non-members

Grab your SEPTA pass, lace up your shoes, and join us for our first ever Photo Scavenger Hunt!

Meet us in the City Hall Courtyard at 1pm to pick up your clues and begin the hunt. You’ll have until4pm to travel to as many locations on the list as you can and take a photo with your team. Teams are capped at 4 members. No team? Don’t worry–register as an individual and we’ll set you up with a team at the beginning of the event.

Some clues will be in Center City and others will be far away–but everything is reachable via SEPTA! And, of course, your team will earn more points for the locations that are farther away and more difficult to reach.

Along the way, your team should email your photos to our judges – so don’t forget, each team will need at least one smartphone! All photos will have to be submitted by the end of the hunt at 4pm.

After the hunt is over, join us for an afterparty at Strangelove’s (216 S 11th St) to hear the results! Your registration includes your first drink, so be sure to join us!

If you have any questions in advance of the hunt, just drop us a line at yptphilly@gmail.com
