Spiral Q Puppet Theater invites you to make art in the park for the 10th Annual Peoplehood Parade and Pageant!
As summer draws to an end, Peoplehood season begins. Spiral Q invites everyone in Philadelphia to join hands in creation and celebration of the 10th annual Peoplehood Parade and Pageant! Peoplehood is a ten-year long tradition of transforming Philadelphia’s hopes and concerns into art, giant puppets, and pageantry through neighborhood collaboration and creativity. People of all ages work with each other and with Spiral Q’s artists to produce a colorful spectacle of dance, giant puppets, music, and theatrics that will parade through West Philadelphia and culminate in a performance at Clark Park on October 17th, 2009!
In preparation for the Peoplehood Parade, Spiral Q is hosting FREE community art making at five different sites: the Paul Robeson House, Malcolm X Park, Clark Park, Village of Arts & Humanities, and Spiral Q Puppet Theater. Everyone is encouraged to stop by, share ideas, make puppets for the parade and performance, and play with Spiral Q in the parks. Families, friends, community organizations, students, teachers, artists of all kinds… Come make Art in the Park with Spiral Q! Then parade and perform with us on October 17th at 1pm!
