Germantown City Hall announces two City Hall Meetings, on June 22 and June 29, both from 1-4pm. The first meeting will focus on the ongoing City Hall project “Topics of Great Importance”; the second will ask community members to consider what’s next City Hall project after its temporary occupancy of the Germantown Town Hall building expires on July 1.
The first meeting, on June 22, will concentrate on the ongoing City Hall project “Topics of Great Importance.” For the first part of the meeting, attendees will read aloud the Topics of Great Importance that have been submitted online and in person throughout the duration of the Germantown City Hall project and the general theme of each topic will be identified. In the second part of the meeting, attendees will divide into groups according to which theme they find most compelling and discuss what needs to be done in order to properly address that theme.
The second meeting, on June 29, will focus on what’s next for Germantown City Hall. Attendees will be asked whether or not they found the project, and the space it provided, useful, and if they want the project to continue in some format. If a majority of attendees want some aspect of the project to continue, where and how will be discussed. Finally, a concrete “next step” – even if it is a follow-up meeting – will be identified.
Both meetings will be moderated by Jacob Wick, one of the artist-coordinators of Germantown City Hall.
Germantown City Hall was commissioned by Hidden City Philadelphia for the 2013 Hidden City Festival with the generous support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts.
