View some of our past experiments:
The Schuylkill River thread its way through the Anthropocene Campus Philadelphia, October 22-26, 2017. The Schuylkill River and Urban Waters Corps messaged participants throughout the week, as the Anthropocene Campus attendees visited the Corps’ field site on the river at Bartram's Garden. From the river, attendees gathered multi-sensorial observations and questions using #ACPRiver and #SchuylkillCorps.
Data Refuge launched November 2016 in Philadelphia to draw attention to how climate denial endangers federal environmental data. With the help of thousands of civic partners and volunteers, the project has rapidly spread to over fifty cities and towns across the country.
The Eastwick Oral History Project documents the rich history and complex cultural life of Eastwick — a vibrant community in Southwest Philadelphia in the midst of a public land planning process. The opening phases of the project led to the 2016 exhibition Date/Um.
In collaboration with Cinema Studies, PPEH organizes its first film series, ECOTIME, as another dimension of the Timescales (un)conference, the core of which takes place on October 20-22, 2016. ECOTIME brings together different genres of film to create discussions around perceptions of the nonhuman environment. The films comment on the clashes/co-minglings between urban and rural landscapes, delayed reaction times to environmental disaster and extinction, and issues of different ecological timescales.
