Notes Description Presented by Resolve Philadelphia, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, QUEST Documentary Impact Campaign, and Hon. Michael A. Nutter. Film Screening - Thursday January 17, 2019 | 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. (PA Convention Center Nutter Theater) Join us for a screening of QUEST, the critically acclaimed documentary film that captures ten years in the life of a family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning in 2008, Christopher "Quest" Rainey, and his wife, Christine'a "Ma Quest" Rainey raise a family while nurturing a community of hip-hop artists in their home music studio. The Prosperity Symposium is influenced by the film's exploration of community-driven solutions and resilience. After the film, the Raineys and QUEST filmmakers Sabrina Schmidt Gordon and Jon Olshefski will engage in a conversation on how they are leveraging the QUEST story to blend evidence and experience and ultimately find what works for all-encompassing prosperity in Philadelphia.

If you would like to attend you may register at the door on the day of the event. The Prosperity Symposium is marked by its commitment to integrative, interdisciplinary research and action. This intimate, half-day summit is designed to reinvigorate Philadelphia’s approach to its greatest challenge—economic inclusion, security, and mobility. Summit attendees will hear from local and national experts, participate in facilitated activities, and brainstorm a consensus course for moving the needle for Philadelphians experiencing economic insecurity. The Symposium will convene a cross-section of researchers, community leaders, and journalists with a diversity of expertise on economic security in Philadelphia to inform and devise a research and action agenda to guide economic mobility interventions deployed at the University of Pennsylvania and beyond.
