To promote visual arts collaboration and capture the energy of the city's arts district by enabling many collectives to produce a multivenue, one-month exhibit.

Throughout November 2013, more than 20 collectives will participate in an exchange of exhibitions, ideas and practices at galleries and alternative art spaces located in different neighborhoods throughout the city.

The organizing force behind CITYWIDE is a group of like-minded, independent art groups currently active in the emerging artist scene of Philadelphia. Organizing participants of CITYWIDE include: Vox Populi, Space 1026, Grizzly Grizzly, NAPOLEON, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Fjord, Marginal Utility, Practice, Little Berlin, Mt. Airy Contemporary Artists Space, Rebekah Templeton, Basekamp, and McCartney/Belknap Projects
