#var:page_name# cover

The third iteration of Monument Lab Live celebrates the history, present, and future of activism in Philadelphia, the birthplace of American democracy.

Monument Lab artists will discuss their projects, made in collaboration with local activist and community groups, respectively, in addition to stirring presentations from local and national rising stars in the social justice and activist worlds.

Join us for TED-style presentations from Greg Corbin from Philadelphia Youth Poetry Movement and the American Friends Service Committee, Tarek El-Messidi (Founder, CelebrateMercy, Philadelphia; Co-Founder, EMIR Healing Center), Reentry Think Tank (Philadelphia), and Monument Lab artists Michelle Angela Ortiz (with the Shut Down Berks Coalition) and Shira Walinsky (with Southeast by Southeast).
