Philadelphia Chapter

Philadelphia, PA Blog

It's hard to believe summer is nearing its end. It was such a great summer here in Philly, especially since we got to host all of our colleagues for the Wayfinding and Placemaking event. We had a great night at Cherry Street Pier enjoying the tastes of Philly and taking in the City's waterfront.

We hope you all enjoyed your visit and the fireworks as much as we enjoyed having you.



Join us after the first day of the conference to experience Philly and connect with the SEGD community at the Philadelphia Chapter Mixer sponsored by Walton!


Event Venue:

Cherry Street Pier

121 N. Christopher Columbus Boulevard


Register here for the mixer and reserve your complimentary drink ticket. Come enjoy local bites and waterfront views.


We hope to see you all there!

Tonight is Forever, an immersive multidisciplinary installation by Gabriel Martinez, investigates, celebrates and honors the ongoing global, national and regional struggles for LGBTQ+ liberation. This project is presented in relationship to the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Martinez draws from over 5,000 images sourced from months of research at the John J. Wilcox Archives, along with images contributed by local Philadelphia communities, to create a visual confluence of perspectives and historical moments (mid 1960s to present) that reflects vital aspects of LGBTQ courage & pride.
