Night life Public Forum

The project will feature a public forum and a series of private round-table discussions about regulatory and economic issues relating to nightlife arts and culture in Philadelphia. Such a discussion has not happened here, while other major world cities are beginning to explore progressive new ideas. This project is a miniature version of Michael’s documentary proposal that was a Knight Cities Challenge finalist in 2017. Discussions will focus on culture, public safety, cultural inclusion, affordability, global competitiveness, planning regulations, and more. They will be accompanied by a web presence to present and analyze news and new ideas.
