Oct. 5 – Call for Presenters – Fast Forward >> Philadelphia

What’s Next for Philly?

Whether it’s a grand vision for the whole city, or your dreams for the patch you know best, we want to hear where you see our city going – and where you want to take it! We’ve heard about revitalizing old neighborhood institutions, learned about exciting new programs in Philly schools, and gushed over a fantasy transit map. Be one of the emerging voices at the seventh installment of Fast Forward >> Philly during the DesignPhiladelphia festival. We want to give your big ideas an audience, Philadelphia!
