Young Playwrights, the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, and Asian Arts Initiative officially launched a new collaboration last night at Young Playwrights’ new and future home at 1219 Vine Street.
The 1219 Project brings youth, social practice artists, theater professionals, and university students together to explore how art can transform place, create community, and create a culture of civic engagement through cross-generational, cross-organizational, cross-disciplinary collaboration.
Young Playwrights gratefully recognizes our Board of Directors, Producers’ Circle and investing partners on the 1219 Project: The Barra Foundation, Wyncote Foundation, CHG Trust, Howell Lockhart Sieple Trust.
The 1219 Project is produced in partnership with Asian Arts Initiative, City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, and the Ira Brind School of Theatre Arts at the University of the Arts.
