GreatPHL | 21st Century Ideas & Event Festival | Artists, Thinkers, Music & Mastery (Philadelphia, Pa)
rKismet Cowork presents GreatPHL 2018 | 21st Century Ideals Festival for Real Philadelphians | will take place tomorrow, Thursday, 15 November 2018 at the Venice Island Performing Arts & Recreation Center located at 7 Lock Street in Philadelphia, PA. A day long event to celebrate all that is Philadelphia within this very moment in time. It is often said that Philadelphia is in the midst of a great renaissance. This is certainly true within the spheres of culture, new business, population growth and the highly coveted increase in both national and international tourism. Why is this? How did this happen? What does it mean? What should be celebrated and what should be revised? GreatPHL event speakers and performers — who are the dreamers of Philly Dreams — were well chosen because they have a very specific and unique Philadelphia story. GreatPHL presents an array of active and engaged citizens who are committed to solutions that allow the city to grow and flourish in a way that supports every demographic, every culture and every individual. We will always be a city of 'us and them' unless we move towards a more collaborative and cooperative community. These independent and thoughtful voices will open minds. They will celebrate the future while sharing lessons from our past to create a stronger, more unified present in a truly untraditional theatrical format. To purchase tickets visit GreatPHL.

The vast majority of conferences, seminars and learning engagements are presented without much technical flair and theatricality. We aim to change that. Our event will be 4 x 90 minute sessions that are a melange of art, music, information, presentation and theater. We will begin with breakfast and networking at 8AM. This will be a highly coordinated, precise and punctual affair. For more information visit GreatPHL
Asked to describe his new ideas fest in a single sentence, GreatPHL founder Christopher Plant does not hesitate: “Engaged Philadelphians talking about Philadelphia to other engaged Philadelphians.” Plant and his team have assembled a diverse group of interesting speakers, performers, artists, thinkers and leaders to take the stage. They’ve been split up into four sections bookended by breakfast and happy hour, with breaks for conversation in between.
BENEFITTING THE PHILADELPHIA BREAKFAST CLUB
In partnership with the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Culinary Literacy Center. The Philadelphia Breakfast Club (TPBC) is a new organization dedicated to helping teach and train Philadelphia children the basics of making a healthy breakfast. TPBC seeks to build confidence and purpose in our young students through a simple curriculum, focused on getting a nutritional start to the day and teaching self reliance. As part of the program, each student will receive their own skillet, mixing bowl, spatula, measuring cups and a 10 recipe cook book. TPBC will also actively promote larger breakfast and learning events throughout the city of Philadelphia.
