To develop young people's awareness of the city's vibrant cultural scene through interactive scavenger hunts led by local artists

Summary: To develop young people’s awareness of the city’s vibrant cultural scene, The Village of the Arts and Humanities will organize interactive scavenger hunts led by local artists. Through the scavenger hunts, students will be challenged to create impromptu art across various neighborhoods, hunt for treasure in artists’ studios, design and build temporary installations with found objects and more. Participants will record their expeditions with homemade pinhole cameras and through online and homemade journals. The action-packed, adventure-based program will introduce hundreds of Philadelphia teens to local artists, writers, performers and cultural destinations.
