Emergence: Philippe d’Anjou

Emergence is a biannual speaker experience that brings internationally or nationally known keynote speakers that are delving into forward-thinking and emerging themes that are relevant to our urban context. The lectures will bring awareness to contemporary urban, architectural, and art practices as it relates to the future of our Downtown. In collaboration with our neighboring district, Rosemary Square, 1909, and Connect WPB, the West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority is working together in co-hosting this speaker event that is free and open to the public.
