Join GroundSwell and the Philadelphia Parks Alliance on April 22

It's election season and we're bringing you the mayoral candidates on Wednesday, April 22nd, from 5:45 -7:30pm in the Montgomery Auditorium at the Central Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia. The candidates will address the role parks and arts play in the City of Philadelphia and how our sectors enhance the economy, environment and the quality of life of our residents. Registration for the event will open up at 5pm.


Our quality of life sectors play a significant role in making Philadelphia a great place to live, work and play. The Mayor plays a critical role in supporting our sectors and helping expand access to our cultural and recreational assets. This is a crucial election for our city in many ways, and we need to hear from the candidates about how they plan to support arts & culture and parks & recreation should they be elected mayor. 

The forum is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Click here to register. After the forum, we invite you to continue the discussion at our post-reception at City Tap House Logan Square. 

Register now! Seating is limited and we expect this event to fill up quickly!
