GradFest 2018 - The Arena Summit


The Arena Summit organizes and energizes up-and-coming civic leaders from across the country. Arena is a networking and training opportunity that would be valuable to Penn graduate students interested in activism, community organizing, or public policy. In addition to getting training in 2018 midterm organizing, social entrepreneurship, and activism through performance, Arena attendees will listen to a rockstar lineup of speakers, including industrial engineer-turned candidate for PA’s 6th Congressional district, Chrissy Houlahan, former senior adviser to President Obama, Dan Pfeiffer, and former mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu. In Philadelphia, “love can be an act of resistance.”

Dates: September 7-8
Location: PA Convention Center, 1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107
