Project Details

Philly Teepee is a pop-up teepee space meant to inspire community connectedness and relaxation in the urban environment. My idea is to set it up in neighborhoods experiencing the tensions of rapid population shift. A mix of residents enter the teepee, talk about their neighborhood, build community, and forge a cohesive neighborhood identity. This will promote long-term investment from newer residents and enhance the exchange of resources and human capital within economically diverse neighborhoods.

Project Update

February 2016
Philip held six Philly Teepee events throughout the city in the summer and fall of 2015. He recently purchased a propane heater to extend the Teepee season, but is still looking forward to starting more conversations in more Philadelphia parks in summer 2016.
