Through a process of deep listening, disagreement, speculation, and negotiation, Philadelphia Assembled reveals commonalities between unconnected individuals and unanticipated networks of solidarity to foster growing communities of resistance. In doing so, Philadelphia Assembled speaks to many urgencies throughout the city, from mass incarceration, to self-determination, to giving and receiving sanctuary, to decolonizing the future. Philadelphia Assembled holds a deep respect for the sustained commitment and work of each collaborator and organization. As we continue to build and grow this project, the artistic team honors a set of core values: transparency, collaborative learning, and radical inclusivity.


Building towards the collective process in relation to power, budget, and capacity.


Participating in listening and speaking as an active practice in which everyone has a voice with a willingness to engage in uncomfortable conversations.


Unpacking layers of oppression and privilege by honoring differences and commonalities.
