40th Parallel North Preservation Brigade
InLiquid’s 40th Parallel North Preservation Brigade or 40PNPB for short, believes that art and community can help our neighbors come together to strengthen personal and collective resilience in the face of anxiety, fear, and dread that surround the issue of climate change and our future. It takes the focus hyper-local to our neighborhood in northeast Philadelphia which sits on the longitudinal circle known as the 40th Parallel North.
We hope you’ll join the Brigade and stop by for a workshop, conversation, or just to take a moment to contemplate some art. And along the way we aim to find purpose and entryways to participating as a community in pursuits that will have real impacts for our and future generations.
