Earlier this fall staff from PHC, the City of Chester, and Widener University, along with Chester artists traveled to Chicago, IL, and Gary, IN, for a peer exchange with local artists who are using their craft to make a change in their communities. The exchange, hosted by Illinois Humanities, gave us insight on creative placemaking at a grassroots level, and will inform our Chester Made Exploration Zone project.
Check out the video playlist below to hear from participants about the exchange.
