Futures Without Guns

Working in a variety of mediums, nine artists present new artworks and design propositions envisioning the possibilities for a future free from gun violence. With a focus on Philadelphia, the project invites community members affected by gun violence to share their experiences and, in several instances, inform the artists’ processes.

We invite you to view the resulting exhibition on display from April 18 – June 21.

The exhibition draws on futures thinking and speculative design methods to consider multiple perspectives on and potential solutions to the complex issue of gun violence and health inequity and to amplify the role of art in advancing societal change.

Futures Without Guns is supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
