2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

  • Neighborhood: South Philadelphia and West Philadelphia
  • Change Partner: Justin Trezza and Norris Square Neighborhood Project
  • Discipline: Multidisciplinary
  • Social Change / Intent: Economic Justice

Anne Harrison and Linda Fernandez plan to use community print making to educate and promote an increased understanding of economic justice issues on a micro-economic level. They will bring awareness to two small endeavors in the neighborhood – one neighbor sews and sells laundry bags, and another community group grows and sells produce in the neighborhood at a weekly farmers market. Their project will connect these two small enterprises together by creating a free printing activity that will encourage neighbors to print on shopping bags, commissioned by the local seamstress, as a way to help kick off the produce season at the farmers market.
