|Please join us for COSACOSA's 2013 public programs and our ongoing initiatives!|
|Throughout 2013, we're exploring the question "what makes a home?" Collaborating with diverse groups of city residents, we'll examine the process of placemaking and differing definitions community -- whether cultural, geographical, familial, and/or conceptual. Please join us in our Manayunk studio and around the city as we showcase diverse public art and ideas about how to "make it better!"
open studio creating public art
for a new Unity Garden in North Philadelphia
Please join COSACOSA and the Nicetown-Tioga Improvement Team (NTIT) to create new public art for North Philadelphia on Saturday, July 27 from 12 noon to 3 p.m. Thanks to generous funding from the Knight Arts Challenge, the Kresge Foundation, and the Union Benevolent Association, we're building community gardens throughout the Nicetown-Tioga neighborhood this summer!
Designed by the community with COSACOSA artists, these projects are part of our long-term partnership with NTIT, Tioga United, and other local organizations and schools to strategically plan for the neighborhood.
And save the date - September 21, 2013 starting at 1:30 pm - for our Philly Fringe happening in celebration of the opening of our new Unity Garden at Old York Road and Venango Street!
You can plant the seeds of opportunity and change!
