Join us to launch the 10th Walk Around Philadelphia!

( This event is open to all, regardless of whether you've explored any of the city's edge yet!)

[ REGISTRATION via FringeArts ] 

Since its 4-person artist residency origins in 2016, Walk Around Philadelphia has become a pilgrimage experience where hundreds (ranging in age from 12 to 94) have set out to explore the city's perimeter. 

JJ Tiziou will be gearing up to celebrate 1,000+ miles around Philly's edge, and this September's iteration of the walk will bring this unique experience of the city to 300+ more participants.

This free* virtual event will offer an introduction to the walk, share recent exciting developments and preview September walk segments, as well as provide time for Q & A and community connection.

The Walk itself will be accomplished in small groups with 10 days to choose from, followed by a special in-person celebration on Saturday October 1. You are invited to join for a half day, whole day, or multiple segments! [separate registration required via JJ's website]
