1000 Ways to Listen

November 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Temple Contemporary at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art and Architecture has commissioned theater artists 600 HIGHWAYMEN, to create a multiyear performance project called 1000 Ways to Listen. This will be an opportunity for Philadelphians to ask each other the question, “Are we listening?”.

A Day of Listening will take place, this year, on Saturday, November 2, 2019. One thousand Philadelphians from across the city will engage one another in an hour-long conversation as a growing and empathetic movement to listen to someone they would have otherwise never met.

We want to ensure we have a deeply diverse and true representation of Philadelphia among our listeners and think your community would benefit from getting involved. Will you consider joining us and helping to spread the word?

You can find a link to the official participant questionnaire at: All responses will be kept confidential.

We’ve included some email and social media copy attached for easy sharing: can also provide promotional materials and the questionnaire in different formats and languages upon request. Please reach out if you have any questions or need additional information.

We believe that we all have a civic imperative to actively and openly listen to one another, and we hope you will be one of the 1000 Ways to Listen!
