North Philly Block Party


Saturday, October 3, 2015 - 12:00pm - 4:00pm
2200 North 8th Street
United States

Visit North Philly on October 3 for a neighborhood hang with Open Source artists Keir Johnston & Ernel Martinez, sponsored by AL DÍA & WXPN.

The Philadelphia-based artists will convert a warehouse on 9th Street and Susquehanna into a community center dedicated to capturing stories of migration and immigration into Philadelphia. Information from the captured histories will be rendered visually inside and outside the building.

The goal of the center is to bridge the African American and Hispanic communities that are divided by the 5th Street corridor through sharing of personal histories. The community will be brought together through a series of lively events highlighting the culture of both groups such as music, food, and art.
