Philippa Hughes is a social placemaker, creative connector & cultural strategist. She has been involved in many of the most interesting placemaking projects in Washington DC. She was instrumental in the Dupont Underground project, founded the Pink Line Project and launched the Van Ness Social Club. Her work is so varied and interesting it is hard to pin down just what to call it. But, in the end, almost all of it has been about leveraging art of all kinds to create and build community in her city. In this podcast, she shares a bit about how important the arts are and what she has learned about building community.
