2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Betty Leacraft will organize Know Your Legal Rights! information sessions at the Community Education Center (CEC). These tenants' rights workshops will be led by a housing attorney from Community Legal Services (CLS) and will focus on tenants' rights issues, remedies, and will include dialogue with Betty about tenant/landlord experiences. West Philadelphia artists and members of the community who attend will participate in two interactive hands-on textile arts workshops. The participants will acquire skills to produce original designs on cloth that will then be incorporated into an informational wall hanging during a public reception at the CEC celebrating the participants' creative efforts. After display at CEC, the wall hanging will be shown at several community centers in West Philadelphia.
