Who We Are

LoLa38 is a creative placemaking collaboration between the Lindy Institute at Drexel University, Wexford Science & Technology, and the People’s Emergency Center CDC.

Our mission is to encourage civic conversation through the artistic activation of the assets (social and geographic) which make Lower Lancaster Avenue a gateway to West Philadelphia’s culture and community

Our work centers around the intersection of 38th/Lancaster/Powelton and the two parcels slated for re-development: The United Bank Building and the University City High School.
