Trust for Public Land
The Trust for Public Land creates parks and protects land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. It’s getting hotter in Philadelphia, and climate change is disproportionately impacting low-income communities, an inequity that influences people’s health, safety, and daily lives. The Trust for Public Land’s project, Heat Response, pairs artists with residents in Grays Ferry, Southeast Philadelphia, and Fairhill to drive change through arts activism. Check out their interactive art installation at this year’s Flower Show to meet the artists, learn more about the project, and find out how you can get involved. PHS is a Presenting Partner of Heat Response.
