The Philadelphia Citizen’s Third Annual Ideas We Should Steal Festival presented by Comcast NBCUniversal
What are the bold ideas that can transform Philadelphia? Who is bringing solutions to the problems plaguing cities across the country? How can we make our city a more just, equitable and prosperous place to live?
We’ll get answers to those questions at The Philadelphia Citizen’s third annual Ideas We Should Steal Festival, presented by Comcast NBCUniversal, our yearly convening of the nation’s most innovative urban thinkers and global thought leaders sharing bold ideas that can move our city forward.
Fitler Club is a community partner, and all members can receive reduced price tickets.
This year the festival will be an all-virtual event, held on the first four Tuesdays in December, from 5:30-7:30pm.
You may attend one week or all four!
Panels will address changing police culture, curbing gun violence, moving the needle on poverty, using capitalism for good, and art as a force for social change.
