Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Announce:

For interactive, performance-based art at LOVE Park during the 2018 Fringe Festival



LOVE Park (aka JFK Plaza), Center City Philadelphia

Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation propose to use the arts to welcome a diverse representation of Philadelphians into the newly redesigned LOVE Park. The proposed programming is intended to emphasize that the improved park is to be enjoyed by all and to convey a sense of belonging and welcome. We’d like to employ the arts as a means of connecting park users with one another. The renovation project removed physical barriers (walls) between the street and the park, opening the park up further to the life on the street. The Arts can help to break down social and emotional barriers. We want people who may never step foot into a theater to feel excited to come to LOVE Park for the free performances. We believe this sort of exposure will also help to promote FringeArts to audiences that aren’t already familiar with them, furthering arts and culture in the city.

Two artists will receive a stipend of $3,000 each to perform a minimum of 3-6 performances in LOVE Park during the 2018 Fringe Festival.
