People's Emergency Center CDC and its arts partners are hosting a series of workshops, public performances, and design-build events along the Lancaster Avenue commerical corrdior in an effort to foster dialogue around public safety and cultural identity. Partnering with Philadelphia Police Department's 16th District, this arts-centric approach to community organizing is helping to address issues related to public safety through arts programming and creative placemaking. Goals include improved police/community relations, an increased sense of public safety, and the promotion of an inclusive and accessible community in which all residents can feel safe and can thrive in place.
