On April 13th, I had the pleasure of attending the Philadelphia Performing Arts Charter School Career Day. The focus was on the creative economy; other presenters were ad executives, event planners, engineers, and lighting designers, to name a few. I made a presentation about the profession of architecture to three different sixth-grade classes.
I was really impressed by the students at this school. Not only did they sit quietly and show interest, but they asked great questions. Special thanks to Avigail Milder, who contacted me about participating. (Avigail herself is part of the creative economy--see her work at Philly Face Painting.)
