The Philadelphia International Unity Cup Banner Art Project is an opportunity for Philadelphians to showcase their ethnic diversity by participating in workshops and community events to help design team banners that represent 48 countries in the 2017 Philadelphia International Unity Cup. Artists will gather ideas during workshops and community events directly from community members in order to create artwork that is reflective of each country. All 48 banners will be included in the Parade of Nations at the Unity Cup Championship Game which will take place on November 11, 2017 at Lincoln Financial Field.

Come participate in a workshop or engagement session to represent your community and have a part in the final banner design of the Unity Cup team you support! Find the workshop in the schedule below. Can’t attend? Submit your ideas online.
